The Nigerian Army has distanced itself from various groups and individuals who have been holding rallies to celebrate the military’s victories against Boko Haram.

The army’s comments were contained in a statement released by Acting Director of Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman today, April 21, 2016.

It reads:

The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a number of groups and individuals celebrating the routing out and decimation of Boko Haram terrorists on our soil.

So much as we thank them for that, it is imperative to state that we do not begrudge such persons their desire to identify and associate themselves with this success. However, the Nigerian Army wishes to disassociate itself from such celebrations and solidarity rallies.

We also would like to advice that they should tread with caution as this could be distractive to us. The public are please informed that the terrorists are surreptitiously fanning out of their last enclaves in Sambisa to cause havoc or seek refuge elsewhere.

Therefore, there is need for all to be more vigilant and security conscious to enable us clear the remnants of these terrorists wherever they might flee.

We would like to reassure the public that we will remain professional and focused in clearing the remnants of these criminals on the Nigerian soil.
