He made the remark at a meeting in Military Command and Control Center, Maiduguri with Borno Elders Forum as part of measures adopted to consolidate on the gains recorded in the counter-insurgency operation.
Burutai said: “We were given three major tasks, and we have made efforts toward achieving two. The first task is to defeat Boko Haram, and I want to tell you that as at today Boko Haram has been defeated. When I say defeat, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be hitches here and there. We have entered the mop-up stage of our operation”.
