Boko Haram bombing soft targets to get relevance – Senate | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Senate Committee on Army has said that the Boko Haram terrorists are seeking relevance by bombing soft targets because they have been decimated by troops.

The Chairman of the Committee, Sen. George Akume, made the remark on Thursday when he led other members of the committee on an oversight visit to the Army Headquarters in Abuja.

Akume described the military as a strategic sector of the country and commended it for decimating the insurgents and restoring normalcy to the North-East.

He commiserated with the army and families of officers and soldiers who had made the supreme sacrifice in the course of the fight against the terrorists and assured the army of continued support.

In his remark, the Chief of Army Sfaff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, said the army would not have been able to degrade the insurgents but for the support of the National Assembly.

Buratai assured that he and other senior officers would continue to remain in the North-East, especially Borno, until the insurgents were wiped out.
