buhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari on Friday insisted that despite the recent Boko Haram attacks, the sect has been technically defeated.
Buhari while speaking with BBC said, “Well, all I know is that out of the 14 Local Government Areas in Borno State where Boko Haram used to hold and hoist their flag, they are nowhere in charge of any of them again. But they can still regroup and go after attacking soft targets.”
Buhari while responding to whether it was fair to say a group which killed over 65 persons in a single attack had been technically defeated, said, “Well, that’s your own description of it. My own description is that they can no longer mobilise enough forces to attack police and army barracks and destroy aircraft like they used to do. They can no longer do that.”
An attack suspected to have been carried out by the group recently in a village in Dalori, Borno State, left
no fewer than 86 persons killed with the sect allegedly burning some children alive.
