The Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Yusuf Tukur Buratai has vowed that he will not leave the theatre of Operation Lafiya Dole until he gave a final blow on the Boko Haram insurgents in the northeast.
The Nation reports that General Buratai had earlier announced his relocation to the northeast following the pounding of the insurgents by the Chadian Army from the Lake Chad axis where the President Idris Deby is claiming to have held a section of Nigeria waiting to handover to Nigerian troops.
The Chief of Army Staff who had a special Easter celebration with the troops on Monday at Ngamdu Special Super Camp regretted that the insurgency has lasted for too long but gave assurances that in no time the Boko Haram elements will be defeated.
“We will not leave this insurgency to last like in other countries who have fought insurgency for close to 50 years. We cannot allow that to happen here”, Buratai said.
Gen. Buratai assured the troops of the support of Mr. President who he said has provided all that they need to defeat the enemies.
He also promised that he will not leave the camp until he gives a final blow on the insurgents.

Pakistani Man Buys Land On Moon As Wedding Gift For His Wife (Photos)
A Pakistani man, inspired by late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, bought an acre of land on the moon as a wedding gift for his wife.
Rawalpindi: “Love you to the moon and back” is not just a saying for a Pakistani man anymore who has bought a one-acre plot of land on the moon as a wedding gift for his wife.
Sohaib Ahmed, a resident of Rawalpindi, bought the lunar land in the region called ‘Sea of Vapour’. The land was bought for $45 from the International Lunar Lands Registry.
Ahmed said that he was inspired by late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput to buy the piece of land on the moon. The land bought by Sushant in 2018 is part of a region called Mare Muscoviense, or the ‘Sea of Muscovy’.
Several celebrities including Tom Cruise and Shah Rukh Khan own land on the moon.
Ahmed’s wife Madiha said that her friends did not believe her when she told them about her unique wedding gift. “At first everyone thought it was a joke, but then I showed them the documents and then they believed it,” she told Samaa TV. She added that one of her friends also wants her fiancé to gift her a plot of land on the moon for their wedding.
The couple received the documents of the land on the moon at their home via US Postal Service.
Earlier, a Bihar businessman bought an acre of land on the moon after getting inspired by Rajput. Neeraj Kumar, a resident of Bodh Gaya, said that the cost of the land was not much, however, the process was difficult. He had contacted the US society ‘Luna Society International’ and applied for one acre of land in October 2019.
“I had given around Rs. 48,000 at that time… money was converted from Indian rupees to dollars. After a lot of online paperwork, I got a message on July 4, 2020, that my deed had been completed,” Kumar had told ANI.
