Nigeria Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has said Boko Haram terrorist group are no longer occupying any part of the country and hence they no longer receive tax from citizens.
The Minister stated this on Thursday, December 3 during and interaction with the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigerian, NPAN in Lagos State,
“Now, let’s put things in context. Before Mr. President assumed office, Boko Haram could stroll into any city, especially in the north, to carry out deadly attacks. Abuja, the nation’s capital, Kano, Maiduguri, Jos, Damaturu, etc were regularly targeted,” Mohammed noted.
He added, “Motor parks, churches, mosques, shopping complexes were not spared. Today, that is a thing of the past. Suicide bombers used to have a field day detonating their bombs and killing innocent people.
“Today, that is no longer the case. Detonating improvised explosive devices (IEDs) used to be a deadly tactic of Boko Haram. Today, that has changed.”
