“Like I said, it’s our professionalism, level of commitment and patriotic disposition. We know that if we are to do anything, we are serious about it. It’s an issue of criminality and sabotage of our national assets. We went in there with clear mandate and objectives to checkmate those criminal activities, and we have the capability, and we have the requisite training and ability.
They have been making noise before, they gave the impression that the military was incapable of checkmating them and they have appeared severally wielding weapons as if they were stronger than the Nigerian military, but in just about a week or two weeks operation, they saw our mobilization and now not only in the creeks but the land also. Now it is a combined operation between the SSS, Navy and the Nigerian Army.
The army led the exercise, and we have an objective. There is no way you play with the national might, the capability of the state with some few criminal elements trying to show that they are better to let them come out clearly, openly and say this is their source of power, whether it will match ours. I perform my duties professionally and without any self-engagement, now anybody who doubts us let him join the insurgents, and we will clear his doubts. ”
