The dreaded Islamist terrorist in Nigeria, Boko Haram has taken the fight to the house of the Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Baratai when on Tuesday they launched an attack in the helmsman's own village in Borno State. Eye witnesses confirmed that eight lives were lost and several houses were burnt down including the family home of the Chief of Army. The Major General was however absent when the incident occurred.
This is coming barely after days the Major announced that the terrorist would come out and beg for peace.
With the coming to power of the new administration, we expect them to quell the terrorist but all hope is not lost yet.
