While speaking at the North-east Governors Forum meeting in Bauchi on Wednesday, Zulum urged the new service chiefs to develop new strategies in ending insurgency in the north-east, adding that joint action is required to end insurgency.
His words, “Again, I want to use this opportunity to call on the federal government to seek support from our neighbours, especially the Republic of Chad and Niger with a view to providing a joint action that will look into the possibility of ending this crisis
“Furthermore, federal government has to look into the possibility of employing mercenaries with a view to ending this insurgency.
“For us to end this insurgency, we must be committed enough. We must bring in external support; ensure mercenaries are hired to end this insurgency.”
He added that “Violence been perpetrated by the insurgents seems to be on the increase both in scope and viciousness and it has become a matter of tactical necessity for the new service chiefs to devise new strategies to counter the current attacks and forestall any future attacks,” he said.
Continuing, “Undoubtedly, the commitment of our military to the war against insurgency is unquestionable and the determination to succeed is undeniable.
“However the current escalation of deadly attacks by the terrorists and the various causes of actions being pursued seems to have some limitations in terms of the expected impact. Hence, the need for a new set of a pragmatic approach to completely subdue the terrorist and ultimately end the insurgency”. He said.
