The Nigerian Army has said it would demolish any building used as hideouts by members of the Boko Haram sect to perpetuate terrorism.
Maj. Gen. Yusha’u Abubakar, the Theatre Commander of Operations Lafiya Dole announced this on Friday, October 2.
“Any facilities that are used to make bombs or used to dress suicide bombers would be leveled,” he said.
Addressing a press conference in Maiduguri, Abubakar said the army was fully committed bringing an end to the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East, Punch reports.
According to him, the army would not give any room for failure or drawbacks.
The commander advised Nigerians to security conscious and report any suspicious character or movement to the military.
