The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General, TUKUR BURATAI, has declared that the Nigerian Army has defeated Boko Haram terrorists and has also deprived them from re-grouping anywhere in Nigeria.
He believes the insurgents have been rendered incapacitated.
BURATAI, who was on a familiarisation tour of military units and formations under the 3 Division of the Nigerian army, disclosed this when he paid a courtesy call on the Gbong Gwom Jos, DA JACOB GYANG BUBA, in his palace at Jishe, Jos.
He said efforts in the North-east have really paid off as the incessant bombing of market places and places of worships and populated areas has virtually stopped now.
BURATAI told the royal father that the Nigerian army has not only succeeded in rooting Boko Haram from their camps in the region, but they have also blocked the criminal elements from crossing to re-building their camp anywhere in Nigeria.
Responding, DA JACOB GYANG BUBA said the success of the Nigerian army over Boko Haram did not come to him as a surprise saying the Nigerian army historically has always distinguished itself wherever they had served.
