The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) on Friday appealed to the media to the Nigerian media not to give undue publicity to the terrorists through sensational cations.
It also noted that the media which is commonly referred to as the fourth estate of the realm is a vital component in the entire process of any campaign plan in either conventional or asymmetric warfare.
The DHQ further disclosed that the war against terrorism is at its final stage and therefore would soon be a thing of the past.
The new Director of Defence Information (DDI) Major General Benjamin Olufemi Sawyerr made the appeal while taking over the information management of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, in Abuja.
He said: “Let me solicit the support of media operators in all spectrums to consider jettisoning sensational headlines that give undue publicity to perpetrators of acts of criminality that tend to undermine our national security.
“As we are all aware, the Armed Forces of Nigeria in synergy with other security agencies have continued to work round the clock in surmounting the nation’s numerous security challenges which include terrorism, insurgency, militancy, illegal oil bunkering, armed banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other sundry crimes.
“These ugly developments, which have continued to affect the peaceful co-existence of the citizens of our dear country, would in no distant time be a thing of the past, judging from the positive feelers emanating from the theatres of operation”.
Appreciating the Chief of Defence Staff Gen Lucky  Irabor and the Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Farouk Yahaya for considering him worthy to be appointed as the Spokesperson of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, General Sawyer said that, it is indeed a clarion call and rare opportunity for him to contribute his quota as the new image-maker and mouthpiece of the Armed Forces of Nigeria towards the realisation of the leadership focus of the Chief of Defence Staff, which is, “To Foster a Professional Armed Forces capable of effectively meeting constitutional imperatives.”
This leadership focus he said is presently being pursued vigourously in a professional manner and will require the support of the media at all times.
He noted that his task and responsibilities as Director Defence Information is to project the Armed Forces of Nigeria, galvanise the support of the media and the citizens for all military operational engagements and the numerous activities of the Defence Headquarters.
Earlier in his remarks, the Deputy Director, Defence Information, Air Commodore Wap Martin  Maigida assure the new DDI of the unalloyed commitment and support of the entire staff of the Directorate towards assisting him in projecting the activities of the AFN and in attainment of set objectives.
He reminded General Sawyerr of the existing cordial working relationship within the Defence Headquarters and the media, particularly, the Defence Correspondents who, over the years, have been veritable partners in galvanizing public goodwill and support for the AFN and other security agencies in the quest of maintaining national security, peaceful and harmonious coexistence among Nigerians.
“Let me at this point, thank the Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor NAM for supporting this Directorate throughout my short stay as the acting Director Defence Information which I indeed remain humbled for the privilege and honour to have served in that capacity,” he conclueded.
