Abuja - Members of the public in areas affected by suicide bomb attacks have been urged to remain calm as the Army was making strides against the insurgents.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director of Army Public Relations, assured civilians the Boko Haram terrorists would not succeed in reversing the gains being made in the pursuit of peace and security.

“We would like to appeal to the people especially the residents of the affected areas to calm and continue to be very vigilant and security conscious as everything necessary is being done to secure their lives and properties,” Usman said.
