Adams Oshiomhole, governor of Edo State in Nigeria, has stated that the people were proud of the Nigerian Armed Forces in their attempt to bring peace and security by defeating the Boko Haram terrorists.
He said: “I cannot imagine what would have become of this state in terms of security if we had not had the support of the armed forces going beyond their conventional call of duty to support the Police and the Department of State Security, to ensure the security of our people in this state. None of us ever thought that the issue of security was far more complicated. It goes beyond defending, as they say, the territorial integrity to now dealing with internal issues of insurgency in ways that are so complicated that just a few years back many of us would never have thought of the possibility of a full-blooded Nigerian carrying out what they would refer to as suicide bombing. “So, our armed forces have risen to the occasion. We in Edo State appreciate the fact that, but for the determination of our officers and men in uniform, only God knows which part of Nigeria would have been under the control of insurgents.”
