Defence Headquarters yesterday described the Boko Haram’s fresh attack on some innocent people in some villages in Borno State, as an act of desperation.
This fresh bounds of attack led to an emergency meeting of the Security Council on Monday at the instance of President Goodluck Jonathan to brain storm over the dastardly act of the insurgents.
Reacting to the issue, the Defence Headquarters spokesman, Brig-Gen Caleb Olukolade said the Boko Haram insurgents have been defeated but were desperately attacking innocent people in order to draw attention to themselves despite the defeat.
Olukolade assured the populace that they had conquered the insurgents and with the collaboration and co-operation going on between the public and the military, the attacks on the innocent would become a thing of the past very soon.
According to him, the attack is condemnable, they are doing so as a reaction to their defeat, they are engaging in desperate action in order to draw attention to ensure that the public still realize of their existence.
