Recent Attacks By Boko Haram Is A Failed Attempt To Stay Relevant – FG

The Federal Government has dismissed the pockets of attacks by members of Boko Haram.

The government says it is a feeble attempt by the terrorists to make themselves relevant, having lost the battle to destabilise Nigeria.

Speaking at the 7th National Security Summit in Abuja, the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, Ambassador Danjuma Sheni, said the government remains committed to providing security for all persons resident within the country.

He, however, condemned the isolated attacks carried out by members of the Boko Haram sect.

“The isolated attacks we have been witnessing, particularly since the terrorists were dislodged from Sambisa forest is not unexpected, but will eventually be brought to an end,” said the Permanent Secretary.

For the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, it is time to match words with action.

“Truly, the problem is not lack of what to do or lack of papers, but the strength to implement what we have agreed to do,” the monarch said.

The Commandant of the National Defence College (NDC), Rear Admiral Samule Alade, who shared the same view with the Sultan, said “having technically defeated Boko Haram, there is the need to as a matter of urgency, build upon the gains recorded”.
