The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism (CATE) has saluted the Nigerian Army for averting what it described as ‘Black Monday’ by successfully repelling multiple terror attacks in several parts of the country.
Recall that the gallant Nigerian troops had overpowered and decimated some terrorists in Adamawa, Yobe and Benue States yesterday.
CATE in a statement through its President, Gabriel Onoja, lauded the Nigerian Army and the entire military for the dedication, commitment and the sense of sacrifice that inspired them to take down the terrorists while putting others in flight with varying degrees of bullet wounds.
The Coalition said that the attacks call to mind the series of alarms that have been raised by different stakeholders that there are people that have commissioned and paid terrorists to carry out such attacks so that Nigeria’s democracy can be aborted and an interim government illegally put in place.
“The Army has averted what was apparently planned to be a Black Monday of sorrow and terror on account of the number of Nigerians that would have been massacred had these terrorists not stopped in their track. This success recorded by the Army is a demonstration of the positive results that can be had when citizens trust the military enough to collaborate with them and provide vital information.
“The successful thwarting of the terrorists in all the instances has affirmed that the decision the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, to launch Operation Python Dance nationwide was the right call for which he should be commended. It has turned out to be a proactive approach to the nation’s security challenges since it is now apparent that there are really those that are embittered that the country is on the way to having peaceful elections, which has made them even more desperate to destroy Nigeria’s democracy,” Onoja noted.
