It said: "by targeting soft spots, the insurgents are now desperate and out to instill fear in the minds of Nigerians even when they are facing defeat in the hands of the military."

The statement urged Nigerians to remain resolute in their belief in the ability of the security agencies to defeat the insurgents in the next few months.

It called on Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for restoration of peace in the North-East and tasked the security agencies to continue with the onslaught on the insurgents until terrorism was defeated.
