Buratai made the declaration at a special service to commemorate the 2018 Armed Forces Remembrance Day at St Bartholomew’s Military Church, Maimalari Cantonment, Maiduguri, Borno State.

Buratai, represented by Maj.-Gen. David Ahmadu, Chief of Training and Operations, Army Headquarters, disclosed that the military has won the war against insurgency. He said the military had recorded successes in the intensified offensive, routed and defeated the insurgents, adding that the military was committed to the restoration of peace to the region. Buratai decried the insurgents recruitment of the teeming unemployed youths that lack morality and are illiterates in their fight.
The Chief of Army Staff admonished parents to ensure proper moral upbringing of their wards to protect them from being used by bad elements to foment troubles and disrupt peace in the society.
