The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonishakin yesterday said that it did not matter whether supposed Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau has been killed or not, that the Boko Haram insurgency had been, “totally degraded, decimated and 100% defeated”.
The Chief of Defence Staff who was represented by the acting Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar at a media parley with Correspondents at the Federal Radio Corporation, FRCN, Kaduna, also cautioned the media against stories that could inflame conflict.
He said: “Today, I am pleased to inform you that we have defeated Boko Haram. It is not an easy feat. Yes, you may hear that an inaccessible village has been attacked or that there was an attack somewhere. But, that is the last kicking of a dying group.
