Former Military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB), has expressed delight over the recapture of Sambisa Forest from Boko Haram terrorists.

In a statement by Media Office of the former Head State, obtained by PRNigeria, IBB said: “It is a sign of relief that the military has finally smoked out Boko Haram terrorists from their notorious enclave of Sambisa Forest.”

Babangida also saluted the courage and determination of President Muhammadu Buhari, military chiefs as well as armed men and women and other security personnel “for their sacrifice for the painful liberation of Sambisa Forest and adjoining abode of Boko Haram.”

He said: “May I rejoice with the government and Nigerians on the successful dislodging of Boko Haram from their base in Sambisa.

“With the successful takeover of the Sambisa Forest, General Babangida hopes that very soon the remaining Chibok girls will be located and reunite with their families.”

The former Military President reaffirmed his earlier stand that, “President Muhammadu Buhari and the military are capable of crushing any challenge of the territorial integrity of Nigeria.”

He paid tribute to all fallen heroes for paying a supreme sacrifice in their efforts of keeping the nation from aggression, saying: “The labours of our heroes past shall never been in vain.”

Finally, Babangida urged the military to unveil a new strategy of further defeating pockets of insurgents/terrorists, armed bandits and cattle rustlers all over the country. (PRNigeria)
