Buhari, who stated this in a statement by one of his Media Aides, Garba Shehu, condemned Boko Haram attack on Garkida, Adamawa State.
Buhari said: “These attacks on soft targets by terrorists, are obvious signs of frustration, because my administration has significantly weakened Boko Haram’s Military capability to invade and hold the Nigerian territory, unchallenged.
“These occasional and episodic attacks on poor civilians by terrorists, are mere propaganda efforts to portray them as strong, in order to fool the public into believing that they have not been Militarily weakened by our gallant troops.”
The President added: “In the coming weeks, Nigerians would witness an aggressive campaign to rout out Boko Haram, once and for all.”
