The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, the Boko Haram terrorist group was destroyed by the lessons he learnt from the Bangladesh National Defence while on course had been very useful in the counter insurgency operations in the North-East.
Buratai made this known in Lagos on Saturday when he received the Bangladesh Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Abu Shafiul Huq.
According to him, the lessons were partly responsible for the success being recorded in the fight against the Boko Haram terrorists.
“The Bangladesh experience in counter-insurgency is something that I brought to bear in the efforts to rid Nigeria of Boko Haram since my appointment as the Chief of army staff,” he said.
According to him, he attended the Bangladesh National Defence course in 2008.
He urged military around the world to take the issue of insurgency and terrorism seriously because they were difficult battles to overcome.
