Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Yusuf Buratai, who recently relocated his operational base to Northeast, the epicenter of unending Boko Haram insurgence, has vowed not to leave the troubled region for Abuja until the remnant of the insurgents are cleared.
At a special Easter celebration with the troops today, April 13, the Chief of Army Staff regretted that the insurgency has lasted for too long but gave assurances that in no time the Boko Haram elements will be defeated.
“We will not leave this insurgency to last like in other countries who have fought insurgency for close to 50 years. We cannot allow that to happen here.”
General Buratai assured the troops of the support of President Muhammadu Buhari, who he said, has provided all that they need to defeat the enemies.
He stressed the point that he will not leave the camp until he gives a final blow on the insurgents.
