He warned that those playing politics with the security situations in the country should desist, adding that the army would not hesitate to take action against them.

According to him, there has been no major attacks in the last two tp three weeks because of the new strategy.

”Apart from some isolated remote areas as a result of some other factors, the attacks have drastically reduced.

”That means we are winning and it is a great success which people should be assured.

”All these cries of insecurity which some groups and individuals are taking it as a political game I think they should have a rethink because it is no longer the case.

”Insecurity has been tamed right now in the northeast and in the northwest and even in other areas we are doing so well.

”Our troops are deployed in support of the government, civil police and indeed the civil authorities,” he said.

The army chief commended the troops for the success recorded so far and urged them to remain focused.
