Senator George Akume, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has said President Bola Tinubu defeated Boko Haram terrorists within his first year in office.

He made the bogus claim during a book launch to celebrate Tinubu’s achievements since he took over the baton of leadership on May 29, 2023.

A statement by John Ameh, media aide to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, Nicholas Ella, on Thursday, said Akume hailed Tinubu for defeating the terror group.

The Akume also disclosed that security agencies have successfully tackled the activities of kidnappers.

He said, “There is no one that is in doubt of President Bola Tinubu’s giant strides in the last year. The federal government under President Tinubu’s leadership has defeated Boko Haram terrorists.

“President Tinubu, in just one year, has built many roads across Nigeria and other critical infrastructures like the Abuja Metro Rail.”

Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters said that 103 Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists and their families surrendered to the Nigerian military in Borno State between May 21 and May 23, 2024.

Major General Edward Buba, the director of Defence Media Operations during the DHQ’s bi-weekly press briefing on Thursday, said the terrorists and their families comprising 13 adult males, 29 adult females, and 61 children surrendered to troops in Mafa, Bama, Gwoza, and Monguno Local Government Areas of Borno State.

“Between May 21 and May 23, 2024, a total of 103 Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorist fighters and their families comprising of 13 adult males, 29 adult females, and 61 children surrendered to troops in Mafa, Bama, Gwoza, and Monguno LGAs of Borno State,” Buba said.
