Abuja - The Nigerian military's new spokesperson has re-affirmed the force's commitment to eliminate the Boko Haram insurgency and other insecurities plaguing the Northeast and other parts of the country.
The recently-appointed Director of Defence Information (DDI), Colonel Rabe Abubakar, gave the reassurance during an interview with a cross section of Defence correspondents who paid a visit to congratulate him on his appointment.
Abubakar said the military was always ready to carry out its constitutional responsibility of defending the country from internal and external foes.

He appreciated the media and other well wishers who had been commending local troops involved in battle against the terrorists in the Northeast.
“They are sacrificing day and night to stamp out terrorism in the area,” said Abubakar.
The Defence Spokesman meanwhile used the occasion to appeal to the general public to be security conscious.
“Security is everyone’s business and should be treated as such,” said Abubakar.
He solicited for public cooperation with the military and other security agencies by volunteering needed information that would help in the operations against terror.
“Terrorists are anti-human, anti-development and act in desperation and callous manner; therefore they must be identified, pursued and annihilated in line without Rules of Engagement,” Abubakar said.
