President Muhammadu Buhari set a deadline for his new service chiefs to end the Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria’s troubled Northern region.
President Buhari conveyed the deadline to the service chiefs today at a ceremony to decorate them after their senate approval.
One of President Buhari’s campaign promises was to end the Boko Haram scourge and already, he has created a multinational task force in collaboration with Cameroon, Chad as well as Niger to fight Boko Haram to a standstill.
At least 500 people have been killed by the terrorist group since President Buhari came to power and Nigerians remain hopeful that the sect will be totally brought to their knees by the Army. Although the militants have lost most of the territory they seized last year, they have stepped up hit and run attacks in markets and other public places in the North.
