In a press release made available to newsmen, Thursday in Abuja by the Media Corordinator explained that unraveling sponsors of Boko Haram, Bandits and other criminal groups is the collective responsibility of the Intelligence fusion centre, where both the Defence Intelligence Agency, Department of State Service and National Intelligence Agency work in harmony, while kinetics of operations is handled by relevant components of the Military.

He was of the opinion that these agencies and the Armed Forces of Nigeria work together in all the Theatres of operations in the country.

According to the statement, the Coordinator was quoted out of context by some media sources, saying the publication is misleading and should therefore be disregarded.
