Operation Lake Sanity 2: MNJTF Counters Terrorist Propaganda with Action Reassures Kukawa Communities of Safety and Security

The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) is determined to continue the Operation Lake Sanity despite terrorist propaganda, reassure local communities of their safety and security, and counter the false narratives spread by ISWAP terrorists.

Chief Military Public Information Officer, Lt Col Abubakar Abdullahi in a press statement gave this assurance while addressing recent propaganda spread by ISWAP terrorists urging Kukawa and neighboring communities to flee or face attack. 

He noted that "Unfortunately, some media outlets have inadvertently amplified this message, overlooking its implications. This reprehensible propaganda is a blatant act of intimidation, a desperate move by a group on the verge of defeat. 

"As multinational troops intensify operations, such propaganda is likely to increase, making it crucial for communities to remain steadfast, vigilant, and confident in their safety. 

"The MNJTF and Nigerian Operation HADIN KAI troops are firmly committed to safeguarding Lake Chad Basin communities. They are actively pursuing Boko Haram terrorists, moving swiftly and decisively to neutralize any threats. Their presence and continued operations serve as a robust shield against this menace.

"The terrorists' so-called ultimatum is a clear sign of their frustration and diminishing power. Their capability to conduct ground operations has been significantly impaired, pushing them towards using scare tactics like Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) at every opportunity. 

"By issuing such threats, they aim to spread fear and disrupt the lives of Lake Chad Basin residents. It is crucial not to succumb to their tactics but instead to demonstrate resolve and fortitude."

The MNJTF therefore urged the residents of Kukawa and neighboring communities to remain united and vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the troops immediately. "Collective vigilance and cooperation are essential during Operations Lake Sanity 2 and beyond. Our unity is our strength, and together, we can ensure the security of the Lake Chad basin region."
