Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has said that the army will soon wipe out Boko Haram.

Buratai made the comment on Monday, November 28, while speaking with journalists at a media workshop in Lagos.

“We are degrading their activities. Most of the areas that were initially occupied by the insurgents have been captured and a lot of them have dispersed,” he said.

“But again, there are elements of this Boko Haram that are scattered all over the North- East and if you know their characteristics, you will know they operate in small cells.

“So they come out and carry out small attacks and disappear. So, we are making efforts to re-strategize, track and finally eliminate them from the battlefield,” he added.
