The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, has stated that by December 2015, Boko Haram would be completely wiped out of the country.

The army boss gave this assurance in a statement issued by the acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, in Abuja on Wednesday.

The statement quoted Buratai as making this remark during a routine operational visit to frontline troops in parts of the Northeast.


?I want to reassure Nigerians that Nigerian Army is ever determined to succeed in meeting up with the set deadline of defeating Boko Haram terrorists by the end of this year,? it said.

The statement further noted that the Army chief had forfeited the public holidays to embark on operational and morale boosting trips to troops under Nigerian 3 Division and 7 Division areas of responsibility.

It said Buratai?s first port of call was Headquarters, 33 Artillery Brigade, Shadawanka Barracks, Bauchi, where he addressed troops on the on-going operations.

The Army chief also visited the 301 Artillery Regiment, Gombe and Biu where he visited two units; 231 Tank Battalion and 331 Artillery Regiment in Aboge Largema Military Cantonment.


Buratai was accompanied on the visit by some Principal Staff Officers at the Army Headquarters and the General Officer Commanding 3 Division, Maj.-Gen. H.A. Umaru and other Commanders.
