Mba explained that currently there are massive strategic security operations; both covert and overt missions, taking place at different parts of the country.
“However,” he said “because of the covert and sensitive nature of their operations, I will not discuss them for now. But Nigerians should be assured that the entire law enforcement and intelligence community in Nigeria will not rest until we win the battle.”
