Written by on September 6, 2022

The Federal Government has said the Nigerian military has defeated Boko Haram terrorists and bandits holding sway in the country.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made the disclosure at a joint press briefing held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday.

According to Mohammed, the country has overcome the high scale of terrorist attacks, stressing that terrorists and bandits have no place to hide anymore.

The minister, however, said that the nation may still witness isolated cases of security challenges in the North and other parts of the country.

He said: ”As you are all aware, the issue of security has dominated our national discourse in recent times, against the background of the terrorism, banditry and kidnapping in the North-East, North-West and North Central; separatist violence and crude oil theft in the South-East and South-South as well as cultism, armed robbery and sundry crimes in the South-West.

”Today, we are here to tell you that while we may not be there yet, our military and other security agencies have succeeded – and are succeeding – in substantially restoring security across the nation.

As far as the daunting security challenges we face are concerned, we can tell you that the worst is over. Never again will terrorists and bandits and their cohorts hold sway in our country.”
