The Nigerian military has repeated its commitment to reclaim Sambisa Forest and bring the Boko Haram insurgency to an end.
The Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major-General Lucky Irabor, said the proposed swap deal involving the missing Chibok schoolgirls and some captured Boko Haram members should not be seen as a sign of failure.
He said Nigerians ought to commend President Muhammadu Buhari for working to a negotiated release of the missing schoolgirls.
The terrorists have signified their intention to dialogue with the Federal Government as stated by Hajiya Aisha Kamil, a confidant of Boko Haram.
Even though, President Buhari had stated that the government would only deal with an authentic source instead of wasting resources and time seeking information from unreliable source.
