Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Ad­esola Amosu said movement of the Military Command and Control Centre, MCCC, to the North East sub-region was to see remarkable op­erational changes in fight­ing terrorism and insur­gency in the north east.

Amosu spoke to news­men in Maiduguri at the Nigerian Air Force, NAF, base on how the military could end insurgency and terrorism in the sub-region within the shortest period.

He said President Mu­hammadu Buhari was fully committed to bring an end to Boko Haram insurgency as quickly as possible.

He however noted that this can be achieved, with the full cooperation and support of the people by providing valuable infor­mation to themilitary and other security agencies, without exercising any fears of doubts.

His words: “We have been receiving valuable informa­tion from the general pub­lic, and we are not taking it for granted in these ongo­ing military operations in the North East. But we need more information without any of the individuals and communities entertaining any fears or doubts on such credible information to end this Boko Haram insurgen­cy here in this country.

“We in the Nigerian Armed Forces, operate on the concept of centralised control, while the execution is decentralised for effective and efficient performances to end this Boko Haram in­surgency.”

On his relocation and movement to Maiduguri, Amosu said: “All of us here you see today in Maiduguri, will stay until to the end of this operation in the affect­ed North East sub-region.”
