The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.Gen.Tukur Buratai, has hinted that insurgency and terrorism may continue in Nigeria for another 20 years.
Buratai made the statement on his verified social media platform Facebook few days after Boko Haram massacred rice farmers in Borno State.
There is general misunderstanding of what insurgency and terrorism entail. There is likelihood of terrorism persisting in Nigeria for another 20 years. It only depends on the level of escalation and the appropriate responses by all stakeholders both civil and military authorities. Also by both local in international actors. Citizens responsibility is equally important and imperative. All must cooperate to contain the lingering insecurity. Let there be collective action and responsibility.
