Military Commander Says Soldiers will Flush Out Boko Haram from Sambisa Before Buhari’s December Deadline

We have heard countless promises about how the Nigerian Military will conquer Boko Haram. And here comes yet another promise: Major-General Yushau Abubakar,  Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, says Boko Haram fighters will be cleared out of Sambisa Forest before the December deadline given by President Buhari.

Abubakar told Vanguard:

“We have achieved a lot and we are still doing much, but you know that the job is still there until we finish it. We are very close to Sambisa, we must enter and capture the forest before the Presidential deadline…Our major concern is that we must fight Boko Haram to a standstill and ensure that we eliminate them…

I am happy that we are progressing very well, we have not reached the promised land but we are making progress. We are making efforts to clear all Boko Haram terrorists camps. We are screening and de-radicalising them for eventual re-integration back to society.”

We love his enthusiasm. Let’s see how it goes.

    You know, I pray for God’s guidance and grace for them. I pray that He’ll continue to strengthen them, direct them, provide them with novel strategies that will weaken and annihilate BH and bring victory to Nigeria. It’s all too easy to be sarcastic but these are also our brothers, they are fighting for a sane Nigeria, they are fighting for the women (and men) and children of Borno, Yola and their environs. And as they are right on the frontline, we should give them in the very least, our prayers and our backing. We need to be saying well done, we are behind you and most importantly, thank you.
