The Nigerian Military, has repeatedly claimed and confirmed by the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, that it had killed the Leader of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau.
However, the Military High Command last week, did a remarkable volte-face, and ordered its men to capture the lethal killer within 40 days, dead or alive.
It appears the Boko Haram insurgents are appearing to be resurrecting from their shallow graves, following the latest renew attacks on solders and innocent defenseless citizens.
”No day passes without Boko Haram unleashing its deadly blow on the peple of Maiduguri’,’ a source said, adding that: “it seems the killed Boko Haram members have all resurrected.”
Post-Nigeria, gathered that the re-emergence of the terrorist group, despite President Muhammadu Buhari announcing its “final crushing” in December 2016, also finds vent in last Tuesday’s capture of Academics from the University of Maiduguri, and officials of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, who were on an oil exploration exercise in Lake Chad basin.
A day after the attack, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Maiduguri, UNIMAID, Chapter, said five staff of the school were killed by the insurgents, just as four are still missing.
Chairman of the Association, Dr. Danny Mamman, told Newsmen in Maiduguri, that the team attacked by the insurgents consisted of Geologists, staff of NNPC, members of Civilian Joint Task Force, CJTF, and Military personnel.
The Nigerian Army, on its part, in a statement on Wednesday, by Director, Army Public Relations, Brig Gen Sani Kukasheka Usman, said it had rescued all the victims. It said that nine soldiers and five staff of the University were killed in the attack, adding that, soldiers had recovered all the corpses in the rescue operation.
The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, on Friday, in a tacit confirmation of Boko Haram’s resurgence, revealed that the terrorists were back to the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State.
It also said that its fighter jets and attack helicopters had bombed the terrorists’ hideouts 108 times, between April and July this year.
Air Component Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Air Commodore Tajudeen Yusuf, while briefing Newsmen in Yola, Adamawa State said: “Intelligence surveillance and Reconnaissance reports through the second quarter of 2017 indicated a gradual return of the Boko Haram terrorist activities to the Sambisa Forest.
Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters on Saturday, insisted that the country has capacity to sustainably wage a war against the insurgents in the North-East, and other criminalities nationwide. 

Director of Defence Information, DDI, Maj. Gen John Enenche, said that the fight against all shades of criminalities was not all about money alone, but using all the kinetics and non-kinetic approaches to win the war, stressing that one can have all the money without emerging victorious in the war.
He said: “We have enough, but it is to win every aspect of this war, every aspect of this conflict that we are going to do, and that is what the country is doing, it is a multi-sectoral approach we are taking.”
Insisting that the country has enough resources to rout the terrorists, but was only being careful in order not to escalate the collateral damage, Enenche added: “In the North East, the Armed Forces are not like the Boko Haram terrorists that will kill anything that has life anywhere they bomb. If it was that, the war would have been won long ago, but there are human beings there, innocent civilians who say this is our country; this is our state, and this is our zone, we would still be here.
“So, it is not the arsenal that you amass that matters, using it appropriately is what matters. For sure we are going to use it appropriately, and we have the resources and the political will and we are being provided with what we need.
“I will say that for me as a military strategist yes, the country is financially able to support the military to carry out the task ahead of us in the area of curbing all the insecurity all over the country.”
He appealed to the general public to give information to the military on any strange movement of persons or machinery within their environment, maintaining that, “there is hope that with the sacrifice of our men and resources, the situation would only continue to improve around the Sambisa area and the entire North East.”
In an apparent response to the resurgence of terrorists in the North East and general area around the Sambisa Forest, the NAF, in a statement in Abuja, yesterday, said it has introduced additional measures aimed at increasing its operational capability in the ongoing counterinsurgency operations.The measures include, the deployment of additional NAF Special Forces and personnel of the Regiment Specialty to reinforce base security, and also fight alongside the Nigerian Army troops and NAF Special Forces that are already on ground.
The statement by Director of Information and Public Relations, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, added that: “the NAF has deployed thermal imaging cameras aimed at adding more value to the current efforts at detecting and checkmating the activities of suicide bombers before they carry out their suicide missions.
“Sambisa Forest is still substantially under the control of our forces and we fly over it day and night. Sometimes, for some of these pilots, as we are going to sleep, that is when they are getting airborne. They take off at 11pm and land at 5am. All they want is to make sure that Nigeria is safe. Remember that the forest itself is about 60, 000sq kilometres, and you can’t be on every inch of it, but where the Boko Haram insurgents had their headquarters at Camp Zero has been dismantled. Do we have all the forces to capture every inch of the land within that 60,000sq km? That is the question we should be asking.”
