Only Lai Mohammed Can Explain How “Technically Defeated” Boko Haram’s Still Carrying Out Attacks – Fayose

Ayo FayoseGovernor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has described the recent Boko Haram attacks in Borno and Adamawa states as disheartening and a slap on the face of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Federal Government, saying that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed must explain to Nigerians how the same Boko Haram he said had been “technically defeated”, could carry out such daring and deadly attacks.

The governor, who condoled with the government and people of Borno and Adamawa states, especially those who lost their loved ones in the attacks, said; “In other countries of the world, the government would have taken responsibility for deceiving and misleading the people and apologized”.

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose asked; “If Boko Haram had indeed been technically defeated as Lai Mohammed made Nigerians to believe, what do we call the Sunday and Monday attacks in Maiduguri, Borno State capital and Madagali, Adamawa State?

“Should we say that the ‘technically’ defeated Boko Haram insurgents attacked Borno and Adamawa States, killing close to 100 Nigerians and injuring several others?

“Only Lai Mohammed who told Nigerians that Boko Haram had been technically defeated can tell us what happened and he must have to explain how ‘technically defeated’ insurgents could carry out such deadly attacks”.


  • He never said that the war against Boko haram has been won instead he said they are technically defeated meaning that they are not like before when PDP was in government.

  • You people should always keep aside political parties and say what God would say if he would be a man!

    If there is any truth in their said technical defeat why such deadly bloodshed and multiple attacks in differents states at different times.

    We are talking about human lives my brethren.

    What if those killed are your close relatives…you would feel good that the govt claimed is sweet and true?

    Insteady of arguing we have to rather tell our leaders, Lai Mohammed and Co to be extra careful when trading words regarding boko haram.

    God bless

  • I no fit laugh. I think the owners of English language need to come and learn English from Nigerians. It is today I learnt that defeat is not win.
    My people I just dey look oh
