Gallant Nigerian Soldiers Have Largely Defeated Boko Haram

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said
that the Nigerian military had met the December deadline to defeat the
Boko Haram terrorists. The minister said this during his maiden
meeting with editorial heads of media houses in Lagos.
In his words: "Today, I can report that the war against Boko Haram is
largely won. I can confidently say this because just recently, I led a
group of 33 journalists from both the local and international media to
the hot bed of the insurgency, that is, Maiduguri, Kondugua, Kaoure
and Bama.
"Today, I can report to you that the entire 70 plus kilometres stretch
from Maiduguri to Bama and all the way to Banki which leads to
Cameroun and the Central African Republic are in the hands of our
gallant troops."

Recalled that President Mohammadu Buhari had, upon assuming office,
issued a December 31 deadline to the military to defeat the Boko Haram
terrorists.

Lai Mohammed said the military presence could be felt "every few
metres along the road; at a point along that road we were just a
kilometre to Sambisa forest. They have so degraded the capacity of
Boko Haram that the terrorists can no longer hold on to any territory
just as they can no longer carry out any spectacular attack."

The minister, however, said that though there were still cases of
suicide bombings, it was pertinent to note that such was the nature of
insurgency globally. "Unlike a war between two armies, an insurgency
never ends with arms victory "Even in countries like Colombia where
insurgency was supposed to have ended decades ago, attacks like this
still happen."

He said that the insurgents had adopted a new style of attacking soft
targets like motor parks, schools, religious centres, etc. killing
innocent people mostly women and children. He, therefore, urged
Nigerians to support the military in the fight against terrorism,
saying that the military had availed itself creditably.

"It is our turn as civilians to give them our support; to realise that
the war they are fighting is not their war alone, but our war, hence
we must own the war."
