This was said by Musa in a news conference on Wednesday in Maiduguri.
He claims that ISWAP is a foreign terrorist organization that is supported by foreign individuals and possibly some Nigerians, and that its leadership is foreign, implying that it has no ties to the country.
“It is very clear that ISWAP are foreigners coming to invade our country which we will never allow to happen.
“That’s why I want to encourage those of them, especially those members that are with them to pull out and understand that they have no stake in what those guys are doing.
“They don’t wish the country well they don’t wish themselves well and we will never allow any foreigner step an inch on ground in Nigeria,” he said.
According to the theater commander, the military has advised governments on the importance of implementing a system that involves victims in discussions about how to deal with surrendered terrorists. (NAN)
