"So far, we are happy and satisfied with what is going on and the cooperation from our citizens.

"We are getting valuable intelligence from our civilian population and we want them to keep it up because this is our country, we have no other country to go to.

"These are people that come from other countries with attempts to destabilise our country’’, he said.

Amosu also expressed delight on steps taken by the government to fight the menace headlong.

"We thank President Goodluck Jonathan and the Presidents of other countries assisting us to tackle the terrorists.
``I want to use this opportunity to fully acknowledge the support of Mr President. He has given more effort to the security than even politics.

"We are lucky again to have neighbours that have agreed to work with us’’, Amosu said
