Brigadier-General Felix Omogui, Commander, 28 Task Force Brigade, has commiserated with the families of the victims of last week's terror attack by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in Kuda, a village in Adamawa State. The incident claimed 18 lives and left many others injured. Omogui expressed his condolences during a visit to the community, which saw him interact with the community leaders and the vigilance groups.
A statement issued by Colonel Sani. K Usman, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, said the Commander went to Kuda to assess the situation in the town following the terror attack. Speaking during the visit, Omogui assured the community that his command will do its best to apprehend the terrorists. He also assured that remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hiding in the area would be expelled.
However, the commander said the security agencies require the active cooperation and support of the people to be successful in their bid to end terrorism. He enjoined members of the community to see the fight against terrorism and insurgency as a collective responsibility that requires cooperation as well as prompt and accurate information sharing.
Brigadier-General Omogui also advised members of the community to be more vigilant and report any suspicious movement or persons immediately.
Speaking on behalf of the community, the District Head of Gulak, Alhaji Ijadi Bello, thanked Omogui for the visit and acknowledged that success in the war against terrorism requires closer collaboration between the security agencies and people of the community. Bello promised that the community will support the military in the fight against Boko Haram.
