Nigeria’s Army Capable of Defeating Boko Haram, Says Defence ChiefFeatured, Latest News, News Friday, May 23rd, 2014
The Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alexander Badeh says that the Military is capable of overcoming the security challenges bedeviling the country.
Badeh said this on Thursday in Jos when he visited the scene and victims of the twin blasts that rocked the city two days ago.
His words: “Fight against insurgency is not something you win in one day, but we will eventually overcome. Some people have fought it for over 40 years and they are still at it.
“For Nigeria we started our own over a year ago by declaring state of emergency and we have already done so much in the North-East, that the insurgents are running from there to look for softer targets.
“The insurgents are moving out of the North-Eastern part of the country because of the pressure the military is putting on them. So is no longer a safe haven for them to operate and they are moving to other softer targets and we will follow them.
“My impression is that they are being cowards, because coming to the market to come and kill people who leave day by day, the poorest of the poor, you come and kill them. What they are trying to do is to intimidate us, but you know that terror will not deter us from being Nigerians.
“We will continue to do what we are doing, we will continue to leave our lives, terror will not succeed.”
