    Isn‘t this the terror group that buhari claimed he had technically defeated some months ago?

    To the best of my knowledge, boko haram still remain a very strong formidable force. Their Eid prayer pix is an undisputable evidence. Our forces still remain poorly equiped against this sect till tomorrow.
    I pity my country.
