Boko Haram days are Numbered – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has condole with families of victims of the fresh attacks by the Boko Haram in Maiduguri, Borno State.

In a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, Buhari added that his administration is ever determined to frustrate their goal to hold Nigeria to ransom.

"The commitment of this administration to protect the lives of Nigerians will not be derailed by the cowardly and indiscriminate violence against innocent people by Boko Haram terrorists, he said.

President Buhari, who also condoled with the government of the state, warns “that terrorists are clearly on the back foot and their days are numbered’’.

"As our armed forces continue to receive more hardware and intelligence to counter our current security challenges, the remnants of Boko Haram will ultimately be crushed.

"The peculiar challenges of asymmetric warfare notwithstanding, our armed forces are ever determined to defeat these enemies of humanity," President Buhari said.
