President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that the ongoing counter-insurgency operations in the North East, may be wrapped up this year.

The war against terrorism in the North East has been raging since 2009, when Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) started their blood-letting campaign against the state.

To achieve the target of ending the war, however, President Buhari has urged the citizens to pray for the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN).

Apart from the counter-insurgency war, the military is also undertaking operations against bandits and kidnappers in the North West and part of North Central.
