MrJohn Enenche, Coordinator of the Nigeria Defence headquarters (DHQ) media operation says the activities and operations of Boko Haram in the North-East has been ‘checkmated’ by the armed forces, Njenje Media News reports.
He said this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria NAN.
In his words;
“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.” he said
