The Federal Government has vowed to continue its fight against insurgency until the country is completely free of insecurity, News About Nigeria reports. 

The Minister of Defence, Mohammed Abubakar, made this known while speaking during a visit to the military operations theatre in Katsina.

He noted that the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led administration has recorded a substantial amount of success in the fight against insurgency and other related crimes.

While addressing Operation Hadarin Daji at the 213 Forward Operating Base, Katsina, the Minister assured officers and men of the Armed Forces of President Bola Tinubu’s administration’s commitment to equipping and training them to enhance combat readiness against insurgency and terrorism.

Reacting to the recent incident involving the killing of soldiers in Abia State, the Minister reassured the people of the government’s determination to bring the perpetrators to justice and prevent such incidents from happening again.
