“Nothing has happened to the Chief of Army Staff, he is hale and hearty and conducting his official duties diligently.

“The gallant troops are currently dealing decisive blows on the Boko Haram Terrorists in the Lake Chad area.

” Over 60 of the terrorists have either been captured or neutralised in the last 3 days. The Nigerian Army is also closing up with the political Boko Haram terrorists and their collaborators.

“They will soon be exposed and the law will take its course against them.”
