The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai says the Army has gone after Boko Haram terrorists who fled Sambisa and were hiding in Taraba.
Buratai said this when he paid a courtesy visit to Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba, in continuation of his tour of Army formations in the state.
“Taraba has not been affected by this insurgency since it started except for the recent incidences that are related to Boko Haram especially as they are being pushed out of Borno,” Buratai said.
“We strongly suspect some of them are currently parading themselves around this state; we are working on our intelligence and information from some good citizens.
“We are banking on support about their movement and we are equally tracking them so that we get them as soon as we can.”
He urged Nigerians to support the military “to finally clear the remaining hideouts of the insurgents.”
