At a breakfast meeting organised by Building Resilience Against Violent Extremism Insurgency and Terrorism (BRAVE-IT), a non-governmental organisation dedicated to countering violent extremism and terrorism, on Friday, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen Christopher Musa, reiterated the unwavering determination of the armed forces in the fight against insecurity and terrorism.

The CDS, represented by Major-Gen Albert Lebo, Director of Campaign Plans at the Defence Headquarters, shed light on the non-kinetic efforts of the military aimed at curbing insecurity across the nation. He emphasised the critical role of accurate intelligence provided by civil society organisations (CSOs) and the general public in enhancing the military’s effectiveness in combating insecurity.

The CDS urged CSOs and citizens to support the military’s initiatives and collaborate closely with BRAVE-IT and other reputable organisations dedicated to tackling terrorism. He underscored the importance of responsible media coverage in security matters, urging journalists and CSOs to leverage the weekly press briefings at the Defence Headquarters for authentic information on security issues.

The reaffirmation of the military’s commitment comes amidst ongoing efforts to address security challenges in various parts of the country. The call for collaborative action underscores the collective responsibility required to achieve lasting peace and security in the nation.

The breakfast meeting served as a platform for stakeholders to exchange ideas and strategies towards building a more secure and resilient society. With a united front and concerted efforts, stakeholders remain optimistic about overcoming the prevailing security threats and fostering peace and stability in the country.
