NGO Hails Troops’  Success in Fight Against Terrorism, Oil Theft 

A non Governmental organisation (NGO)  christened Prayer and  Support For  Nigerian Armed Forces and other Security Agencies, PSNAFSA has commended the renewed efforts of the Nigerian security forces in wiping out terrorists from the land.
Specifically  the group hailed the Nigeria Armed Forces, the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies in the ongoing fight against insurgency and oil theft .
A release signed by the secretary of the group  Oluchi Ugboaja quoted the group’s convenerMrs Mary Abayomi- Fatile as saying that the joint security forces are now smoking  out from their dens and hideouts in a retaliatory recourse and unconventional tactics by the gallant defense and security forces.
Worthy of mention  is  the recent capture of six of the perpetrators of the Owo Church Massacre in Ondo State by the Military. and the bombardments of bandits enclaves .
She  asserts that  the renewed vigor against economic saboteurs under the administration of the  Chief of Defense Staff, General Lucky Irabor and the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, has yielded great results.
According to her,” It is gladdening to know that  the Nigerian Navy’s effort  to rid the nation’s maritime domain of  all sorts of criminality has yielded positive results, as it has   successfully foiled oil theft, illegal oil bunkering and pipeline vandalisation among other maritime crimes.
 It is also on record that for the first time in 17 years, the Gulf of Guinea and the Nigerian waters recorded the lowest piracy drop , in the first nine months of the year 2021, as disclosed by a report by the International Maritime Bureau.
The Navy’s milestone achievement in its anti-piracy drive , resulted in  delisting of Nigeria from piracy list , by the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) .
“ Since then, the navy has never turned back in its resolve to stem the tide of maritime crimes, as it recently recovered petroleum products   worth over N25 billion since April 2022.
As partners in progress,  PSNAFSA  will continue to encourage  Nigerians from all walks of life  to pray for God’s protection on our Armed Forces and other security agencies , until the fight against enemies of the state is totally won.
” It is evident that the balance of terror has dramatically and effectively titled against terrorists-insurgents , as they are being smoked out from their dens and hideouts in a retaliatory recourse and unconventional tactics by the gallant defense and security forces.
” Recent onslaughts  on terrorists, bandits and economic vandals  in the northern part of the country are glaring proof  of the tireless efforts and profound recalibration of strategy,  by the chief of Army staff lieutenant General Farouk Yahaya , and the Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal  Oladayo Amao , even in the face of limited logistics.” the statement reads in part
PSNAFSA   deems it imperative to  appeal  for collaboration from citizens, communities and organisations across the country,  with  our armed forces and other security agencies, in the fight against  insurgency.
This organization believes that when patriotic citizens provide useful information to all security agencies , it will boost  intelligence as well as fast track efforts towards  ensuring that   normalcy returns to  all parts of the country.
“To achieve an all inclusive participation, we  appeal to both the traditional and new media operators to put the interest of the country first,  in their reportage, by  propagating a common front of peace and stability , geared towards maintaining the successes  recorded by our armed forces and other security agencies in the ongoing fight.”
