The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, on Thursday reiterated that Boko Haram insurgents have been totally decimated, claiming the group was fighting the last battle.
The Renaissance reports that the workshop was organised by the Nigerian Army School of Public Relations and Information (NASPRI), Lagos.
Buratai delivered a lecture titled: “Counter Terrorism and Sustenance of National Security in Nigeria: Successes and Lessons by Nigerian Army”.
He was represented by the Director of Information Management, Department of Civil Military Affairs, Army Headquarters, Abuja, Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar.
The Army Chief said the Nigerian Army was leaving nothing to chance in the war against terrorism in the country.
“We also created jingles, the essence is to preach true religion and other aspects of security operations to educate Boko Haram on the need to become good citizens and be reintegrated into the society.
“All these have yielded good result as the insurgents have been so decimated. What we are witnessing now is the case of dying men trying to survive.
On his part, Commandant of the NASPRI, Brig.-Gen. John Agim said, “NASPRI’s intention is to make Nigerians know that they have a role to play in the security of the nation.
“It is not just them versus we and the only way we can bring the public to discuss is to have it in a workshop like this.”
