“Boko Haram Insurgents Have Been Defeated” – Army Chief, Buratai Declares



Army Chief- Tukur Buratai

Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, declared Sunday that Boko Haram insurgents have been defeated by troops in the northeast.

Buratai made the declaration at a special service to commemorate the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day, held at ST Bartholomew’s Military Church, Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri.

Buratai, represented by Maj.-Gen. David Ahmadu, the Chief of Training and Operations, Army Headquarters, disclosed that the military has won the war against insurgency.

He revealed that the military had recorded successes in the intensified offensive, routed and defeated the insurgents, adding that the military was committed to the restoration of peace to the region.

Buratai decried the insurgents recruitment of the teeming unemployed youths that lack morality and are illiterates in their fight.


The Army chief admonished parents to ensure proper moral upbringing of their wards in order to protect them from being used by bad elements to foment troubles and disrupt peace in society.

    I know that, that 1b was collected in the name of fighting BokoH but frankly speaking it’s obvious that Buhari saved the money for his 2019 re-elecion.
    God must surely judge you wicked Buhari, because I know God won’t allow you to take that seat again
    You can go n chop the cake(money) you collected from the national cakes.
