Boko Haram Muhammadu Buhari Nigeria

Gives military three months

13 Aug, 2015

Buhari swears in a new set of military chiefs in Abuja, ordering them to end Boko Haram’s Islamist insurgency within three months.

 You need to brace up and continue to team up with other stakeholders to come up with a well co-ordinated joint effort which will bring a desired end to these insurgencies within three months. The activities of these misguided groups and individuals have resulted in wanton destruction of lives and properties of our citizens and a disruption of social economic lives of millions of Nigerians.

The president urges the armed forces to conform with international law.

In particular you must protect innocent civilians and respect the rights of combatants.
