Boko Haram terrorists are no longer in Nigeria – Army Chief | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen. Tukur Buratai Tuesday said the military has chased Boko Haram terrorists completely out of Nigeria.

Buratai stated this in Lagos after unveiling some office structures at the Albati Barracks.

He said those the latest attack by the insurgents around the Lake Chad Basin was done from outside the nation’s border.

Buratai said: “You cannot call it resurgence. We are taking care of all these. Wherever there is attack, we look at it to see what happened so that we can address specific issues.

“This is a conflict and we have done very well and gone very far. We have pushed them outside our territory. Those who attack mostly come from outside to attack our people.

“So, we are working with the multinational Joint Task Force to address that. They are very few and they come from across borders.”

On plans by the army to free persons taken into captivity by the insurgents, Buratai plan was ongoing despite the negotiations being conducted by the government.

“We are working on our strategy to ensure that all abducted persons, including Chibok girls are rescued. The negotiations by the government does not hinder our strategy. Any other arrangement done through diplomacy is aiming towards themselves objective.

“The army is collaborating with all security services. We are not overwhelmed nor over stretched. We are better trained, better equipped and have better intelligence.”
