The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, says only Nigerians can determine when insurgency, terrorism and other security threats would be over in the country.
Mr Buratai stated this on Monday when he visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja to give him updates on the national security situation.
Groups like the Islamic State’s West Africa Province and Boko Haram have terrorised the northern parts of the country for more than ten years.
Also, between 2019 and now, there has been a surge in kidnapping and banditry across the country.
Although President Muhammadu Buhari had on different occasions claimed that the nation had defeated the Boko Haram insurgency, reports of rampant killings in many parts of the country have proved him wrong.
On July 9, it was reported how 37 soldiers of the Nigeria Army Special Forces were killed in an ambush by Boko Haram members along Damboa-Maiduguri road.
