The Federal Government has insisted that terrorist group, Boko Haram, is not occupying any part of the Nigerian territory having been decimated by the military.
The Minister of Defence, Mr Dan Ali, made the clarification against the backdrop of the recent brazen attacks by the group on two army locations in Borno state, which claimed the lives of some soldiers.
Mr Ali who was speaking in Makurdi, the Benue state capital during the induction of newly acquired helicopter gunships by the Nigerian Airforce, added that the terrorists have now resorted to guerrilla warfare as their only strategy.
Boko Haram Attacks Repelled
He spoke less than a day after troops of the Nigerian Army successfully repelled Boko Haram attacks on Madagali and Liman Kara towns in Adamawa and Borno states, North-East Nigeria.
Army Public Relations Officer of the 28 Task Force Brigade Mubi, Major Akintoye Badare, confirmed that there was no record of casualty and that everything was calm.
