Army destroys Boko Haram camps
All known Boko Haram camps in the North-east, including the terror group’s cells, command and control centres have all been destroyed.
This is according to Director of Defence Information (DDI), Col. Rabe Abubakar, who spoke at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja.
“These terrorists have been subdued, even if they are adopting other means and as they are re-strategising, we are also doing the same and pre-empting them,” he said.
“We have coordinated the air and ground assaults to make sure that these terrorists’ hideouts are completely decimated. As I am speaking to you, all the terrorists’ camps have completely been wiped out.”
“So right now they are completely in disarray, have no command and control of where to plan. We have even taken over their camps that most of them abandoned and are attempting to blend into towns and communities. We have also apprehended some of them and very soon innocent Nigerians can move back to their communities.”
“We are making a lot of headway, so people should know that Boko Haram is no longer strong enough to hold grounds. Very soon this issue of whether they are in control of any territory in Nigeria or not will come to the open.”
“I am assuring you that they will never again recapture the territory taken from them because what is happening right now with the deployment of troops, equipment and morale will ensure that.”
