The Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole, has commended the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai for motivating the officers and men of the Nigerian Army to make progress in the war against Boko Haram.
Oshiomhole said “Yes, Boko Haram has not exactly disappeared, but there is no doubt that they themselves will in their own way appreciate that things have changed, that the Nigerian side is better. They no longer have that audacity, that impunity to move freely without fear.”
The Edo Governor also said “We in Edo State appreciate the leadership that you are providing for the Nigerian Armed Forces and the Nigerian Army in particular. We watched you on television and we saw a very senior officer meeting his officers and men right in the battle field, sharing the dust, the sun and all the deprivations, the sort of thing you sometimes see in foreign countries. I think that you are leading by example.”

Meanwhile the COAS recently revealed that Sambisa forest, the supposed stronghold of Boko Haram, is as big as Enugu State.
Buratai also said the bomb blast which occurred at a mosque in Borno State on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, was expected.
If it was expected, then the question now, is: Was there anything done to avert it?
