Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters says the country’s armed forces have checkmated the activities of Boko Haram terrorists in the North-eastern part of the country.
Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major-general John Enenche, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday, January 11, in Abuja.
According to him, “The issue of bombings that even spread to other places like Abuja, Kano, Niger and Kogi States, including their slipper cells no longer exist.
What about suicide bombing, which is one of the signs of terrorism? It was rife and even at our checkpoints they come and detonate bombs as well as public gatherings; all these have been nipped properly.
If you put all these together, I can tell you that terrorism has been checkmated. However, the signs are still there with isolated action here and there; common with terrorism.”
