The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism (CATE) has applauded the Nigerian Army’s Super Camp strategy, describing it as a “masterstroke” and the long-awaited catalyst to flush out the remnants of Boko Haram from the North-East.
The group made this strong case for the military’s latest approach at a press conference held in Abuja by the National Coordinator, Gabriel Onoja on Sunday.
The strategy entails the concentration of fighting forces in strongholds called Super Camps with capacity to respond swiftly to the adversary.
According to CATE, this move has been a huge success, encouraging the leadership of the Nigerian Military not to relent in its efforts to get rid of the already decimated, fleeing Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists.
The group, however, urged political leaders in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States to lend their support to the military’s effort.
CATE further called on traditional and religious leaders to back the exercise while ensuring that their subjects do not act as spies for Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorist and against the interest of the military.
