“There is no doubt that we will fully overcome these challenges and win the war against terrorism in Nigeria.”

Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima had only recently admitted that the insurgency was assuming a worsening dimension.

He said this at a closed-door meeting with security operatives.

He said, “The realities are that while so much was achieved by our gallant military, we are, today, faced with serious challenges in Borno State.”
