BUHARI ORDERS MILITARY CHIEF TO DEFEAT BOKO HARAM IN THREE MONTHS

Date:

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has given his new military chiefs a three-month deadline to defeat the Islamist militant Boko Haram group.

He gave the order at a swearing-in ceremony for the new service commanders he appointed last month.

When Mr Buhari took office in May, he vowed to tackle the six-year Islamist insurgency “head on”.

He has made a boosted multinational force of 8,700 central to his strategy in tackling the crisis.

At least 17,000 people have been killed since Boko Haram launched its insurgency in northern Nigeria 2009, according to Amnesty International.

Although the militants have lost their strongholds, they are still active and there has been an upsurge in suicide attacks since Mr Buhari took office.

There have also been more attacks in neighbouring states.BBC
