The immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai has expressed confidence that insurgency in the country, especially in the North East will end soon.
Buratai spoke during the Pulling Out Parade held in his honour at the Mogadishu Cantonment in Abuja on Friday.
“Let me thank my governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum. He has been supportive to me and of course, the Nigerian Army, especially in the fight against insurgency,” Buratai said.
“He came with a unique leadership and I assure you, collectively, the Nigerian Army and the Borno State Government will end this insurgency within the shortest possible time.
General Buratai equally hailed the Nigerian Army for major victories in the fight against insurgency in the northeastern part of the country.
“I want to urge the COAS to maintain the momentum and the pressure to rid these last vestiges of the terrorists in the north-east,” he added.
