We have totally defeated Boko Haram – CDS boasts
The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonishakin has insisted that Boko Haram has been totally dismantled.
According to him, it did not matter whether supposed Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau had been killed or not, but the truth was that the terrorist group had been wiped out.
The Chief of Defence Staff who was represented by the acting Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar at a media parley with Correspondents at the Federal Radio Corporation, FRCN, Kaduna, also cautioned the media against stories that could inflame conflict.
He said: “Today, I am pleased to inform you that we have defeated Boko Haram. It is not an easy feat. Yes, you may hear that an inaccessible village has been attacked or that there was an attack somewhere. But, that is the last kicking of a dying group.l
Just few days ago, the sect members attacked Mums garage in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital killing scores of persons.
