Hundreds have been killed by Boko Haram in Borno and other States.
Schools have been closed to avoid attacks by militants. Schools, colleges, and churches have become the killing grounds.
Boko Haram takes all the credit for butchering teenagers, old men and their women, and burning places of worship while killing children and women in Nigeria.
Nigeria military and the intelligence corps re-strategized their preemptive strategy against Boko Haram.
Bomb their camps, cut off their supply chain routes, intensify military operations on the militant’s forward bases, and kill their leadership ruthlessly.
It has worked alright.
Boko Haram’s struggle is to make Nigeria an Islamic state, but that, according to arrested and debriefed extremists is a pipe dream.
Fighters are dying of wounds, starvation, and even internal conflict.
Constant aerial bombs by Nigerian airforce have yielded desired results.
Debriefed militants, recently arrested, say the cause is dead, fighters are going away and there is almost no legit command chain.
If these reports are to go by, Boko Haram will be remembered as one of Nigeria’s worst nightmare in the 21st century.
