Insurgency, Terrorism Likely To Continue In Nigeria For Another 20 Years – Buratai
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has hinted that terrorism and insurgency may likely continue in Nigeria for another 20 years.
The army chief made the remark on his verified Facebook page a few days after Boko Haram massacred rice farmers in Borno State.
Recall that Boko Haram insurgents had massacred 43 rice farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
Buratai noted that Nigerians generally misunderstand what insurgency and terrorism mean.
According to the Army boss: “There is general misunderstanding of what insurgency and terrorism entail. There is likelihood of terrorism persisting in Nigeria for another 20 years.
“Citizens responsibility is equally important and imperative. All must cooperate to contain the lingering insecurity. Let there be collective action and responsibility.”
