“Insurgency and terrorism may continue for an additional 20 years” – Buratai


The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.Gen Tukur Buratai, says terrorism in Nigeria may continue for an additional 20 years.

Buratai said this on his confirmed Facebook page a day after more than 43 rice farmers were killed by Boko Haram in Borno State.

The military boss made statements that things can possibly improve if both military and regular civilians meet up to handle terrorism.

He wrote, “There is general misunderstanding of what insurgency and terrorism entail. There is likelihood of terrorism persisting in Nigeria for another 20 years. It only depends on the level of escalation and the appropriate responses by all stakeholders both civil and military authorities.

“Also by both local in international actors. Citizens’ responsibility is equally important and imperative. All must cooperate to contain the lingering insecurity. Let there be collective action and responsibility.”
