The Internet went agog on Friday, 17th of April after news filtered through the media that the leader of the Boko Haram terrorist group is requesting a soft landing from the Nigerian Armed Forces.
After an onslaught led by Chad’s President Idris Beby saw over 1000 members of the terrorist group killed, the Boko Haram faced another firepower from the gallant Nigerian Armed Forces.
The Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) of the Nigerian Army, Lieutenant General Buratia had vowed to remain in Borno until Boko Haram is wiped off, and it appears he’s living up to his words like a true soldier!
OYOGist.com recalls that a viral video showed the President of the Tchad country, Idris Deby purportedly instructing his men not to hand over captive Boko Haram members and weapons to the Nigerian army to avoid them been freed.
The Chadian ambassador to Nigeria later denied the video.
With the battle now seeing Boko Haram facing imminent defeat, the terrorist leader is said to be seeking a soft landing from Buratai.
