The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has insisted that it is obvious the Boko Haram terrorist group has been defeated.
He stated this in his Christmas message to troops, especially soldiers deployed in the fight against insurgency in the North East.
The Army chief noted that although the insurgents now resort to misinforming the public about their activities, the military has recorded a big success in its onslaught against them.
He urged the troops in the Counter Insurgency Operations in the North East to be very wary of Boko Haram Terrorists increasing misinformation and propaganda.
Buratai asked the troops to see the terrorists as criminals and double their effort at ridding the North East of the insurgents.
According to him, the soldiers are well trained and more experienced than the terrorists and they must leverage this to completely win the war against insurgency.
