Boko Haram: Sect no longer a serious fighting force – Osinbajo says

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says Boko Haram is no longer a serious fighting force

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that Boko Haram is no longer a serious fighting force.

This is coming after the kidnap of over 100 girls from a secondary school in Dapchi, Yobe state.

According to the Vice-President, the sect is capable of doing anything to get the media to focus on them.

Osinbajo said this while speaking at the 8th National Security Seminar 2018 organised by the Alumni Association of the National Defence College in Abuja, Punch reports.

He said “Today’s enemies, loosely-structured non-state actors, sometimes faceless, choose to mutate.

“They will alter their goals and objectives at random, and are capable of doing anything and everything to continue feeding off the oxygen of media attention.

“Yet, this should not be interpreted as meaning that we are fighting an unwinnable war.
