The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadiq Abubakar, Thursday said the Boko Haram insurgency in parts of northern Nigeria would soon end. Speaking when he paid a maiden visit to the 207 Special Mobility Group of the Nigerian Air Force in Calabar, he said that the military was at the “tail end of totally eliminating the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.”
According to him, the movement of the sect in long convoys from one village to the other, killing innocent people has been curtailed. He said that the military has re-captured most of the territory that were previously in the control of the sect. “We are not only winning the war against Boko Haram, we are actually at the tail end of the battle.
