Buhari Confident Intelligence Centre Will Help Military Beat Boko Haram
President Muhammadu Buhari has remained upbeat about Nigeria's chance of defeating Boko Haram soon.
He has once again expressed confidence that with the Intelligence Fusion Center that his administration is setting up in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, Nigeria's military will stay ahead of Boko Haram's desperate attacks on soft targets.
The President's statement is coming just a day after suicide bombers killed at least 15 persons and injured over 50 others in Biu Market in Borno State.
He offered his condolences to the families of the victims of the attack on his Twitter handle on Sunday, praying that the souls of the dead will rest in peace.
My condolences to the families of the victims of the bomb attacks in Biu yesterday. I'm confident that the Intelligence Fusion Center we're setting up in Maiduguri will help us stay ahead of Boko Haram's desperate attacks on soft targets. May the souls of the dead rest in peace.— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) December 3, 2017
The President had, in Jordan on Saturday, also highlighted what the world must do to end violence extremism and terror attacks.
He says regional cooperation is now needed more than ever to combat the world-wide threat of violent extremism.
Speaking at a bilateral meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan, President Buhari stressed that inter-regional cooperation and information sharing were the only ways the evil of terrorism could be curtailed.
