‘Truth Must Be Told, We Can’t Stop Boko Haram Even In 20 Years’ – Burutai

Former Nigerian Army boss, Tukur Yusuf Buratai, said the end of Boko Haram insurgency is not in sight.

The immediate past Chief of Army Staff, said this while answering questions from lawmakers who screened him along with other former Service Chiefs.

They were screened today, February 18 ahead of their confirmation as Non career ambassadors designates.


He told the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs led by Mohammed Bulkachuwa that there was no end in sight to the insurgency in the North Eastern part of the country.

However, he said insurgents would continue to constitute menace to security of the country in the next twenty years.

He said:

”Our troops are also collaborating with Chadian and Cameroonian troops. We recorded success, but the terrorists have permeated into the society.

“My state (Borno) is an epicentre, where this indoctrination has penetrated so deep. They (insurgents) have won the communities to their side. That is why they (communities) keep Boko Haram. So it is complex, it requires a whole of government approach to solve this. Military action or activity is just one aspect.

“One mistake that we have been making is that only the military can solve this. It is not. There are political, social, economic aspects that need to be addressed.

“Development should be progressive, there should be road everywhere, there should be employment, schools, hospitals all over.

“Yesterday, I counted five Local Government Areas in Borno State that do not have good access road to those places.

“In Noth-West, North-Central, there are so many ungovernable spaces, which the insurgents are penetrating. The places don’t have schools, hospitals and so on and education is very fundamental.

“Unless these things are done, this insecurity will continue.

“The truth must be told, because this thing cannot end soon. It may take another 20 years and that is the truth.”
