Nigerian Army launches operation to “totally destroy Boko Haram”

According to a statement by David Ahmadu, the Chief of Training and Operations, the new operation‎ will last four months.

“Operation LAST HOLD is expected to last for 4 months and it will entail deployment of 6 additional manoeuvre brigades and other critical assets in Borno State‎,” Mr Ahmadu, a major general, said.

Over 100,000 people are believed to have died from the Boko Haram insurgency since 2009, majority of them in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.

The military and the federal government have ‎in the past announced that the insurgents have been “technically defeated.”

However, the terror group, which has since split into factions, is still able to carry out attacks on civilian and military targets.

Mr Chukwu, however, says the new operation will “ensure the destruction of Boko Haram Terrorist camps and strong points in the Lake Chad Basin.”

“The operation will also facilitate the rescue of hostages,” he said.
