Muslims in Nigeria, all members of Boko Haram, slaughtered eighty people. This massacre just happened after the president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari sad that his army had “technically won the war.” According to one report:
Nigerian terror group Boko Haram has slaughtered at least 80 people in a series of attacks on cities and towns just one week after President Muhammadu Buhari suggested his army had “technically won the war.”
The Associated Press reported that the Islamic radicals killed 30 people in Maiduguri in Borno state in blasts and shootouts, and on Monday killed another 20 people in a bombing outside a mosque. Yet another twin suicide bombing in the town of Madagali cost another 30 lives.
With a further 16 people killed, including children, in an attack on the Kimba village on Christmas Day, the terror group’s death count has reached close to 100 people in less than a week.
BBC News noted that last week Buhari, who had previously vowed to drive out the terror group from the country by December, suggested that they had “technically” already been defeated.
“Boko Haram has reverted to using improvised explosive devices. Indoctrinating young guys … they have now been reduced to that,” the Nigerian president said.
“But articulated conventional attacks on centers of communication and populations … they are no longer capable of doing that effectively,” he added.
“So I think technically we have won the war because people are going back into their neighborhoods. Boko Haram as an organised fighting force, I assure you, that we have dealt with them.”
