The General said terrorism was orchestrated by few individuals who desired to inflict suffering on millions of people in the Lake Chad Basin, for their own selfish and personal interests.

Yusuf noted that countries affected by insurgency had developed their respective Disarmament, Demobilization, Reintegration and Resettlement (DD/RR) programmes.
