Boko Haram Attacks Home Of Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai

 

burataiTwo people were killed and eight injured when Boko Haram attacked the family house of Tukur Buratai, the new chief of army staff (COAS), on Tuesday.
Buratai, who has been talking tough about the insurgents since he was named chief of army staff a week ago, was not in Buratai, his village in Borno state, when the attack took place. Reuters reports that the suspected Boko Haram militants also burned down several houses.
Buratai recently changed the code name of the army operations in the North-east from “Operation Zaman Lafiya” to “Operation Zaman Lafiya Dole,” vowing that he would make Boko Haram beg for peace.
His boast was similar to that made by Alex Badeh, former chief of defence staff, who promised to crush Boko Haram mercilessly on assumption of office in 2013.
After a series of attacks by the militants who eventually took over his country home in Adamawa State, Badeh said his statements were meant to motivate the soldiers.
