Things will change by October – GEJ says Boko Haram will be handled in a month’s time

by Azubuike Azikiwe

President Goodluck Jonathan has promised that changes can be expected by October, regarding the constant terror attacks of the Boko Haram sect on the north-eastern part of Nigeria.

He said this on Thursday, 17 September, while speaking at the 66th National Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Jonathan said Nigeria’s greatest challenge was insecurity, saying that Nigeria has gone beyond mere terror attacks, as the Boko Haram sect plans to carve out a part of the country as a separate Islamic entity.

He said: “Nigeria is having an unfair share. Terror is a global problem, and Nigeria situation is going beyond terror. When terrorists think about holding ground, attempting to install leadership, it is no longer terrorism, it is almost like going into the line of succession. Between now and October, things will change.”

He also commiserated with victims of killings in Kaduna and Kano states.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army said another 60 insurgents were killed in the battle that ensued, when the Boko Haram insurgents attacked Konduga on Wednesday, 17 September.

The fire-fight lasted from 4 pm to 8 pm, after which several military hardware were recovered from the insurgents included Two Ford Ranger pick-up vehicles, 13 AK-47 rifles, five RPGs, two General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs) and one anti-aircraft gun.
