The Strategic decision to strengthen the synergy of the Army operations between the land and air forces on one and hand and the integration of both the intelligence assets and logistics support. And also that of other security agencies have proved very effective in the operations.

The Greatest Magic Bullet Employed By The Nigerians Military In Fighting The Terrorist

Chime Omeje continued by sayingt that the greatest magic bullet employed by the military authorities which has enabled the current desirable result so far, aside from the high moral and fighting spirit of the troops, is the new found synergy between the services.

In effect, the unhealthy inter-service rivalry which robbed off negatively on the professional and operational relationship between the ground troops and air component before the current dispensation is now a thing of the past. No wonder they (the military) hit the bull’s eye and leave the adversary with bloodied nose, operations after operations.

Furthermore Chime Omeje continue by saying that course, successful operations are usually the result of painstaking actionable intelligence, which is provided by different sources. Most effective of which is the human intelligence (HUMINT).

It was gathered that acting on the directives from the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya, massive engagement of intelligence tools were employed to gather actionable information on the locations.

This also includes movements and arm stockpiles of BHTs / ISWAP. When Lt General Farouk visited the theatre recently, he assured the troops that they will get whatever they need to be able to penetrate the BHTs / ISWAP bases both in the Sambisa forest and Lake Chad general areas.


Without doubt, the use of some discreet technologies has also assisted in gathering useful intelligence for the military. It has also enabled the troops to carry out several offensives st eukesinto the so-called strongholds of the terrorists.

As a professional force that adheres strictly to extant international laws of arms conflict. Particularly, the provision that relate to adversaries surrendering, the Nigerian Army has promised to always accept Boko Haram members who laid their arms.

And those Boko Haram fighter that willfully denounced violent campaigns. These kinetic and non-kinetic lines of operations are really paying off. As the professional manner in which they are handling the surrendered fighters within the ambit of international best practices have no doubt helped to convince others to come out too.

Feelers from the theaters are that the troops are upbeat about the current leadership of the military. They have in many occasions expressed their appreciations for the support they receive from their COAS and other Service Chiefs, who have provided needed combat enablers. And insisted in ‘jointness’ and the idea of taking the fight to the terrorists.

From what is going down in the theatre of operation in the north east, it is obvious that the troops are more than ever ready to conclude the war on terror.as soon as possible. But they will need serious support from all men and women of goodwill to finish off the job.
