Obinwannem News Claims that Boko Haram is defeated gets complicated - Presidency

Following the recent attack at Damaska in Maiduguri on Thursday by Boko Haram terrorists against some UN officials, the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has in his follow up reaction contradicted his claims that the terrorist group has been defeated.

Recall that the APC led government of Muhammadu Buhari had on different occasions claimed that the deadly Boko Haram group was defeated.

Just after the attack on the UN officials, the president in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, and titled “the dastardly attack on UN aid helicopter in the Northeast” has openly condemned the attack.

In a reaction to the reports of the incident, President Buhari said: “This latest cowardly attack on the UN humanitarian helicopter is yet another desperate rearguard action by the Boko Haram terrorists who have been under intense pressure from the Nigerian military.”

“Let me reassure the international community and Nigerians that this latest cowardly attack on a UN helicopter which claimed the lives of two people, including a five-year-old baby, would not go without severe consequences.”

“Boko Haram terrorists are clearly on the back foot and their increasing attacks on innocent civilians, including UN humanitarian workers, were part of their desperation to prove that they are strong in order to cover up their dwindling fortunes.”

“The security of foreigners and Nigerians remain the top priority of this administration, and we shall leave no stone unturned until we eliminate these remorseless enemies of humanity.”
