Zulum, who has been attacked at least three times by the terrorists in less than a month, also said all heads of military commands must be competent if the war must be won.

Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno State, has asked the Nigerian Army to attack Boko Haram hideouts if it intends to end the insurgency in the North-East.

The region has been plagued by violent extremism since 2009 and the situation has continued to escalate under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Zulum, who has been attacked at least three times by the terrorists in less than a month, also said all heads of military commands must be competent if the war must be won.

He made the comment in Borno on Tuesday while speaking at a conference.

The governor said, “We must also have the courage to tell each other the common truth and be critical of the troops’ operations when things go wrong.

“As part of the ten-point agenda of this administration, the Borno State Government shall sustain its role as a stakeholder in supporting the activities of the Nigerian Army, through the provision of all the needed support and morale-boosting mechanism to all the security agencies to end the fight against Boko Haram crisis.

“In this direction, I wish to ask the Nigerian Army to change the war narratives all together in order to end the crisis.

“Attack, they say, is the best form of defence.

“The Nigerian Army must have to take the war to all the hideouts of Boko Haram.

“You should not wait and give the terrorists an opportunity for the first attack. You should as a matter of policy, embark on critical clearance operation after successful execution of attacks.
