We Have Defeated Insurgency in Nigeria – DHQ.
The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has said Boko Haram insurgents have been defeated in the Northeast part of the country.
The Coordinator of Defense Media Operations, John Enenche, in an interview with NAN on Monday, said the Nigerian military has also checkmated the operations of the terrorists in the troubled region.
He noted that the federal government and the Armed Forces defeated the insurgents in the Northeast and across the country in 2015.
“The issue of bombings that even spread to other places like Abuja, Kano, Niger and Kogi States, including their slipper cells no longer exist.
“What about suicide bombing, which is one of the signs of terrorism? It was rife and even at our checkpoints they come and detonate bombs as well as public gatherings; all these have been nipped properly.
“If you put all these together, I can tell you that terrorism has been checkmated.
“However, the signs are still there with isolated action here and there; common with terrorism.”
