‘War Against Boko Haram Is Yet To Be Won’ – Buratai Tells Troops

hief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen.Tukur Yusuf Buratai, on Wednesday, August 2 warned troops fighting Boko Haram terrorists in North-East Nigeria to remain steadfast and be more proactive.

The army chief gave the warning, while addressing officers and men of the Nigeria Army in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.

Although he commended the soldiers for the successes recorded so far in the fight against the insurgents, he asked them to remain resolute as the war is not yet over.

“The war has not yet been won and all is not over until it is over. Hence, I congratulate you on the progress made so far but we must do more.”

Buratai also asked them to work in harmony with other security operatives, saying no meaningful progress would be made without their cooperation.


“Let me urge you to partner with other security agents in prosecuting the war and anything less will jeopardise the efforts of the security forces as a whole.

“I want to assure you that the highest military hierarchy will continue to give you all the necessary support in the fight,” he added
