As Nigerian troops took over the stronghold of the boko haram terrorist. Their leaders are currently on the Run. One of the fleeing leaders recently dislodged in Sambisa forest in Borno State was arrested on Saturday in Ikorodu area of Lagos.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai disclosed the arrest on Sunday at the re-opening of two major roads in the state closed since 2013 at the height of the activities of the insurgents.

NAN reports that the roads are Maiduguri-Gubio-Damasak and Maiduguri-Monguno-Baga.

Buratai charged troops in the North East to pursue the fleeing Boko Haram men and intercept them.

He said in spite of the take over of the terrorists’ last strong hold in the Sambisa forest as announced by President Muhammadu Buhari, “we have no time to waste”.

The chief of army staff described the seven-year fight against the Boko Haram terrorists as “quite sober and touchy”, saying that a number of officers and soldiers had lost their lives in the war.

He prayed for the repose of their souls and vowed that the army would recommit itself to the fight until “remnants’’ of the terrorists were cleared.
