Boko Haram Not Holding Any Nigerian Territory – Buhari

President Buhari says despite
the recent attacks by Boko
Haram members in some parts
of Borno state, the group has
now been decimated to the
point where they do not have a
hold on any Local government
area in Nigeria.
Buhari said this while speaking
with the visiting President of
Germany, Joachim Gauck, at the
statehouse today Feb 11th
“It is a pity Boko haram
welcomed you by explosions
in Maiduguri that took so
many lives, but I have
attempted to explain in so
many fora that Boko haram is
not what it used to be.
While they were firmly
holding 14 out of 774 local
governments when we came
in, they are not holding any
local government now.
What they have resorted to is
using improvised explosive
devices to cause maximum
casualties on soft targets as
they did yesterday,” he said.
