The Coordinator of the Nigeria Defence headquarters (DHQ) media operation, John Enenche, says the armed forces have ”checkmated” the activities and operations of Boko Haram in the North-East.
Enenche said this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria NAN.
“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
