John Enenche, the spokesperson for the Defence Headquarters, was quoted as saying that Boko Haram can no longer operate in the northeast like they use to do prior to 2015.

Enenche explained that the military has stopped Boko Haram from taking over territories and setting up administrative structures.

He also pointed out that the military has succeeded in halting the bombings by the insurgents that used to take place in states across the country.

“The issue of bombings that even spread to other places like Abuja, Kano, Niger and Kogi States, including their slipper cells no longer exist.

“What about suicide bombing, which is one of the signs of terrorism? It was rife and even at our checkpoints they come and detonate bombs as well as public gatherings; all these have been nipped properly. If you put all these together, I can tell you that terrorism has been checkmated.”

However, he stated that there were some isolated cases of terrorist activities.
