Army says no more Boko Haram camps in North East


The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, said there were no camps of Boko Haram terrorists in the northeastern part of the country anymore.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Usman, who disclosed this yesterday while addressing newsmen at the inauguration of Strategic Communication Course for senior officers at the Nigerian Army School of Public Relations and Information, Bonny Camp, Lagos, said the military was winning the war against terrorism.

He said: “The situation in the North-East has tremendously improved. The military operations or the fight against terrorism and insurgency in the North-East is hinged on three things.
“First, defeating the Boko Haram terrorists which have been accomplished and making room to facilitate humanitarian assistance which is also ongoing.
“Then restoration of law and order for good governance to take place.

“We no longer have camps of Boko Haram terrorists and we no longer have them in the territories.”

On the inauguration of the communication course, Usman said that training of personnel was paramount, adding that it would enhance proficiency.

He thanked the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, for improving the Nigerian Army formations.

Also, the NASPRI Commandant, Col. John Agim, said the course was to better equip senior officers who were saddled with the responsibility of shaping the information environment.

“As you settle down to face the rigours of this course, I urge you to take advantage of this training to enhance your capacity in public relations.

“Also, enhance your capacity in information management and by extension in the profession of arms”, Agim said.
