All Progressives Congress (APC) National Stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has congratulated the country, President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army over the capture of Sambisa Forest, the last stronghold of Boko Haram terror sect.
Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole finally entered Boko Haram’s Camp Zero located in the heart of Sambisa Forest on Friday and crushed the insurgents.
In a statement by his Media Office on Sunday in Lagos, the former Lagos governor also commended the troops for their bravery and resilience, asking them to now move to establish their hold on the area.
Tinubu said: “I congratulate the nation, President Buhari and the army for crushing Boko Haram in their last stronghold of Sambisa Forest. I congratulate the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole for their bravery and resilience. They have given the nation a most wonderful Christmas gift.
“I know the insurgents were engaged in their last desperate acts and merely clutching to their last straw. Now they have been put down. Terror will have no place in our land. The end is here.
“I commend the troops. I thank them again for their courage and bravery. It’s time to finish the job and locate and liberate the remaining Chibok schoolgirls abducted from their school in 2014.
“As we sink ourselves in the Christmas celebration, let us remember to pray for the troops. Let us remember that for them, there was no Christmas.
“Let us also spare a thought for the Internally Displaced Persons. We must support them and give them hope”.
