A resident quoted in the report said:
“Our girls are still there since their abduction last week, we call on the government and the military to do whatever is possible to rescue them and take the fight to these people.”
Another resident, Iskarju Ezekiel appealed to the military authorities for a sustained operation to flush out Boko Haram members from their hideout.
“It has been happening on a smaller scale because there are remnants of Boko Haram in the surrounding bushes. We have been living in fear since the latest abduction on Monday.”
Musa Ado wrote on Facebook:
“The people in troubled areas should buy AK 47 rifles and hand them to their retired servicemen who will defend their community as the first line of defense.
“If Boko Haram fighters know villagers have ak 47 rifles they think twice before they attack, that’s what Kurds and Shiites do in Iraq and Syria and they finish ISIS there.
“Nigerian Army alone cannot give security in Borno and Adamawa, the two states are two large where one local government is the size of two states in Igboland.”

“Cowardice, always attacking the weak and vulnerable.”

“It’s time for our gallant military that rescued the 344 students to come and display their talents again.”
“These people’s madness keeps advancing each and every day.”

Meanwhile, the national chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Audu Ogbeh, has revealed what happens after captives are rescued from the clutch of terrorists following payment of ransoms.
Ogbeh, who was a minister of agriculture under President Muhammadu Buhari’s first tenure said that with information available to the ACF, terrorists divert the ransom money into the purchase of arms.
In a related development, many insurgents were killed during airstrikes executed by the Nigerian military on the Sambisa Forest in Borno state.
The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) in a statement obtained by Legit.ng on Tuesday, December 29, disclosed that the operation was carried out by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole.
