Christopher Musa, theatre commander of the north-east joint task force — Operation Hadin Kai vows Nigerian military will not allow foreign terorrists like the Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP) to have a strong holding in Nigeria.
Speaking in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday, in Maiduguri, Musa said: “It is very clear that ISWAP are foreigners coming to invade our country which we will never allow to happen,”
“That is why I want to encourage those of them, especially those members that are with them to pull out and understand that they have no stake in what those guys are doing.
“They don’t wish the country well, they don’t wish themselves well and we will never allow any foreigner step an inch on ground in Nigeria.” NAN quoted him as saying.
The theatre commander added: “So, for us to even accept them has been very difficult but professionally we are meant to do that,”
“Once we have those windows and they are working, we are meant to ensure that we arrest them, bring them in and then the nation will take its proper cause through constitution and that is what is going to happen.
“We want them to agree to understand fully that Operation Hadin Kai is just doing its own bit and the military operation is just one line of operation which is about 20 percent while the remaining 80 percent has to do with diplomacy, humanitarian, justice, rule of law and all these things.
“So, that is the stage we are in now.”
