Edet said this in Lagos, yesterday, at the inter-denominational service organised to commemo­rate the Nigerian Army Day Celebration, at Saint Charles Lwanga Catholic Church, Ikeja Cantonment.

“Almost on a daily ba­sis, we arrest Boko Haram members that flee into Lagos just like they flee to other places.
“They have seen that the war is being won, so they are running. The army in conjunction with other se­curity agencies arrest them almost on a daily basis.

“Initially, they (would) deny when we ask them questions, but, when we probe further, they would reveal where they fought, how they killed soldiers, how they detonated bombs in post office, Maiduguri and so on.

“By this, we do what we need to do by sending them to the higher authorities to do what the laws and the constitution of Nigeria says it will do with them,’’ he said.

“We have every reason, for those who are still alive, to thank God for giving us victory against Boko Ha­ram. So many others are amputated; some are even using crutches because they fought against Boko Haram so we will have one country.
“About a year ago, we were object of public ridi­cule, those of us in uni­forms, if we talk, the public will say go and fight Boko Haram insurgents and stop making noise.

“But, we thank today that the Almighty God, who trained our hands for war, has taken the shame away. And, now, Nigerians are proud of us again as their soldiers; saying we are at the front line,’’ he said.

Edet, on behalf of Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Bu­ratai, wished soldiers and officers a good celebration.

“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter.

I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds,” she said.
