Applause continues to go the way of the Federal Government for clearing Sambisa Forest of the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists, amid fears that the dark characters may have successfully blended with the local residents in Borno State or are on the run from the State.
Security sources have assured that they were ready for the scenario, and are on the track of escapees. One was recently nabbed in Lagos, hundreds ok kilometers away.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar urged the swift redevelopment of the North-East, the geo-political zone most affected by the insurgency.
He congratulated the officers and men of the Nigeria Army on the feat of the invasion and sacking of Camp Zero, the last Boko Haram stronghold in Sambisa Forest.
According to him, final peace and reconstruction cannot take place without the return and resettlement of the displaced persons in IDP camps.
Like Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, Atiku said the flushing of the forest of the insurgents is the best Christmas and New Year gift to the nation.
