DSS operatives

The Northern Inter-Faith Religious Organisations For Peace (NIFROP) has urged the Department of State Security (DSS) and police to wade in and investigate individuals and groups whose allegiance and support for Boko Haram borders on a cult like followership as this could well be one of the strategies used in building new cells and recruiting young persons into the ranks of the terrorists.

The group said it is concerned by recent comments by some highly placed individuals which suggests that they are working to undermine the war against terrorism in the country.

Speaking at a press conference, national spiritual leader of the group, Bishop Musa Phomson said the latest deliberate propaganda by some individuals to create tension within the liberated communities is a new twist to the war on terror.

Phomson said it is obvious that following the annihilation of the terrorists by the military, the political wings have now stepped up their attacks in an attempt to demoralise the gallant troops.

He however said the DSS and police must quickly move in to investigate such individuals and their roles in the terror war.

He said, “The fallout of the political Boko Haram is the on-going vituperation by those acting the script. We have read what they put out in the public space to mislead the public by suggesting that ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’, the army operations against the insurgents is at variance with the overall military command as embodied by the Defence Headquarters. They even went as far as insinuating rivalry between the Chief of Army Staff and the Chief of Defence Staff to make things look like the CDS is being outshined by the successes of the army in curtailing the war against terrorism. “
