Insurgency Will Soon Be Over – BurataiFeatured, Latest News, News Across Nigeria Saturday, January 30th, 2021
(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The former Chief of Army Staff, COAS Lieut.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, says the military will soon put an end to the insurgency ravaging the North East and operations of the terrorists will be a thing of the past.
He disclosed this during the Pulling Out Parade held in his honour at the Mogadishu Cantonment in Abuja on Friday.
“Let me thank my governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum. He has been supportive to me and of course, the Nigerian Army, especially in the fight against insurgency,” Buratai said.
“He came with a unique leadership and I assure you, collectively, the Nigerian Army and the Borno State Government will end this insurgency within the shortest possible time.
“I want to urge the COAS to maintain the momentum and the pressure to rid these last vestiges of the terrorists in the north-east,” he added.
Buratai handed over to Major General Ibrahim Attahiru, his successor, on Thursday. He and other security chiefs handed over their resignation letters during the week and it was immediately accepted by President Buhari.
The President has since appointed new security chiefs so that they can introduce new ideas in the unending battle against bandits and Boko Haram.
