The Nigeria military, on Wednesday announced that it has completely decimated all camps and hideouts of terrorist group Boko Haram, in the restive north eastern region.
This was revealed by the Director of Defence Information (DDI), Colonel Rabe Abubakar, during his maiden media interaction with journalist, at the Defence Headquarters (DHQ).
Colonel Abubakar said the military is winning the war against Boko Haram as all the camps of the terror group have been destroyed.
He said: “These terrorists have been subdued, even if they are adopting other means and as they are re-strategizing, we are also doing the same.
“We have been coordinating on the air and ground assault 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, having no command and control of where to plan. We have even taken over their camps and most of them have abandoned their bases and blended within towns and communities.
Colonel Abubakar said that the army is making a steady headway and a lot of achievements.
He said people ought to know that Boko Haram is no longer strong enough to hold grounds.
He said, “Very soon this issue of whether they are in control of any territory in Nigeria or not will come to the open. We must begin to think of the nation.
Abubakar assured Nigerians that the terrorist group will never again recapture the territory taken from them, adding that “what is happening right now with the deployment of troops, equipment and morale will ensure that.”
