Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed joy at the announcement that the Nigerian Army has crushed Boko Haram’s last enclave in Sambisa Forest called “Camp Zero.”
According to the President Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, informed him that the camp fell at about 1:35pm on Friday and that the terrorists were on the run, and no longer have a place to hide.
“I was told by the Chief of Army Staff that the Camp fell at about 1:35pm on Friday, December 22, and that the terrorists are on the run, and no longer have a place to hide. I urge you to maintain the tempo by pursuing them and bringing them to justice.
“I, therefore, call on all Nigerians to cooperate and support the Nigerian Armed Forces and other security agencies by providing useful information that will expose all the terrorists hiding among the populace.
“Further efforts should be intensified to locate and free our remaining Chibok girls still in captivity. May God be with them.
“I also want to congratulate and commend the able leadership of the Nigerian Army in particular and indeed, that of the Armed Forces in general, for making this possible. This, no doubt, will go a long way in improving the security situation not only in the North East, but the country in general. But we must not let our guards down.
