Boko Haram might have continued its attacks in the country, but it does not mean the Islamist sect’s resurgence.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said despite the attacks, the sect remains largely decimated, dispersed and disoriented. According to him, no Nigerian territory is under Boko Haram control.
Mohammed, who spoke at a media briefing in Abuja, noted that government anticipated the attacks far back, hence the warnings that soft spots may become target of the disoriented group and the need for vigilance on the part of the general public.
In view of this, the minister said that the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) will not be returning to their various homes until government is able to replace the soldiers with the police and other para-military agents.
