‘No Gree’ For Terrorists, DHQ Tells Nigerians

‘No gree for anybody’, the slang adopted by some Nigerian youths as a slogan for 2024, has resonated with the military.

The Defence Headquarters used it to pass a message across to citizens on Thursday.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Director of Defence Media Operations, Edward Buba, charged the Nigerian people to stand their ground and prevent terrorist activities in 2024.

He urged Nigerians to be security conscious and report criminal activities to security agencies.

“Make Nigerians no gree for terrorists this year. You see something, you say something and we assure them of doing something,” Buba said.

“The aim of our ongoing operations remains unchanged and clear even in the new year 2024. We aim to find and destroy the terrorist wherever they may be hiding to ensure their enduring defeat. This would deny the terrorist the ability to terrorize or hurt citizens across the country.

“Our operations indicate that we are hunting the terrorist commanders and their senior leadership. Indeed, from their topmost leadership to the lowest commanders are dead men walking and we will stop at nothing until they are dead or surrender.

“Our operations resulted in 86 neutralized terrorists with 101 of them arrested. Troops also arrested 30 perpetrators of oil theft and rescued 21 kidnapped hostages. In the SS, troops denied oil theft of the estimated sum of N736,115,470.00 only,” Buba added.

The slang emanated on social media and many have interpreted it as being used to resist threats of succumbing to the influence of others.
