Boko Haram: CSOs decry campaign of calumny against Army

The coalition of Civil Society Groups Against Terrorism in Nigeria has condemned alleged campaign of calumny against the Nigerian Army.
Speaking through the Convener and Secretary of the coalition, Odeyemi Oladimeji and Atani John on Monday, they alleged that some groups were accusing the Army leadership of failing to pay till date, the salaries and allowances of its soldiers drafted to the Operation Lafiya Dole in the North East.
They described the action of the groups as unpatriotic and inimical to the ongoing war against terrorism in the country.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos, the group said: "No amount of blackmail and wild allegations against the leadership of the Nigerian Army, particularly the Chief of Army staff, General Tukur Buratai, can derail the Army and its leadership, from pressing further in defeating the now decimated Boko Haram insurgents, and their intellectual wing, whose major preoccupation, is to continually disseminate unfounded allegations, in order to misinform the general public and ultimately, demoralize our hard fighting troops, in the front lines."
“Nigerians are wise and are clearly informed, about the commitments of the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to the war against terrorism, coupled with their strong belief, in the integrity of the Army leadership, which has continued to prioritize the welfare of officers and men of the army, against what was obtainable in the past, all these to the disappointment of the intellectual wing of Boko Haram, whose blackmails and inciting utterances have in the past, served as fuel to the raging flame of terrorism in our country.” the statement reads further.
The group urged Nigerians to desist from all forms of actions, which seek to promote insurgency and demoralize members of the nation's security forces.
