The Minister of Defence, Alhaji Mansur Dan’ali, on Saturday, said the Nigerian Army was set to destroy all camps and hideouts of the Boko Haram sect in Sambisa forest, Borno State.

Dan’ali made the statement during an inspection tour of the construction site of new barracks in Gusau.

According to him, the Nigerian Army is now on the verge of entering the forest and will soon flush out the insurgents terrorising some states in the north-east of Nigeria.

”We have been working seriously, going round the world, collaborating with other countries in fighting terrorism at national, regional and international levels,’’ the minister said.

Commenting on the barracks under construction, Dan’ ali said the project was to be completed within three months.

He said that the project was part of the present administration’s efforts to ensure the comfort of the military and other security agencies.

”You know, President Muhammadu Buhari is seriously concerned about the welfare of the Nigerian Army and other security agencies as we have noticed from the attention given to them lately,” he said.
