The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, has said that soldiers have killed three top commanders of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.

The Army chief gave the names of those killed as Asalafin, Danladi and a bomb manufacturing expert nicknamed ‘Doctor.’

According to Ihejirika, Danladi is believed to be the vice-president of the sect while Asalafin is the minister of defence.

Ihejirika said this at the closing ceremony of a range classification exercise at the 177 Guards Battalion, Keffi, Nasarawa State, on Friday.

He said the three Boko Haram leaders were killed in a military operation at Wamakko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, where only the houses of the terror suspects were raided, and so no civilian casualties.

According to him, the wives and children of the Boko Haram leaders were in custody of the military.

“The latest as at today is the one in Sokoto, where we were able to get several of the leaders of the Boko-Haram, one of them is called Asalafin.

“He was one of those we put a price tag on, he has been taken off, followed by another leader called Danladi and the bomb-making expert nick-named doctor,” he said.

Ihejirika said the Army’s determination of the Army to put an end to incessant killings, and terminate the terror scourge in the country received a boost with the recoveries of assault weapons, rocket launchers, pistols and other bomb-making materials in Sokoto, Maiduguri and Kaduna.

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
