The All Progressives Congress (APC) has condoled with the government and people of Borno and Adamawa over the deadly attacks that left many dead and injured in the two states on Friday.

This is contained in a statement issued in Lagos on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

APC said that while even the loss of one life was too much to bear, the government and people of the states should take solace in the fact that the attacks would come to an end.

The party based its optimism on the fact that the nation's gallant soldiers have stepped up campaign against Boko Haram insurgents.

''The spike in the attacks in recent times is a direct reflection of the huge successes by the military in flushing the Boko Haram terrorists out of their strongholds and putting them on the run.

"With no fortress to call their own any more, having been smoked out of Sambisa forest and removed from their caliphates, they have resorted to these cowardly attacks aimed at soft targets.

''Grim as the situation may seem at the moment, these cowardly attacks will taper off sooner than later.

‘’This is because suicide bombings are not sustainable, and because of the unrelenting campaign by our military," it said.

APC called on all citizens, especially those in the worst-hit areas of the country, to be extra-vigilant saying that the terrorists had dispersed into the population after realising that they were doomed.

''It used to be that Boko Haram terrorists will easily slip across the border to neighbouring countries after carrying out deadly and spectacular attacks in Nigeria.

"Now, they have not only lost their ability to carry out spectacular attacks, they are also unable to slip across the border, after being increasingly hemmed in by regional forces.

"Their days are numbered, Boko-Haram is domed''.

Do you think President Buhari has done enough in fighting Boko Haram?»
