President Buhari says despite the recent attacks by Boko Haram members in some parts of Borno state, the group has now been decimated to the point where they do not have a hold on any Local government area in Nigeria. Buhari said this while speaking with the visiting President of Germany, Joachim Gauck, at the statehouse today Feb 11th

 “It is a pity Boko haram welcomed you by explosions in Maiduguri that took so many lives, but I have attempted to explain in so many fora that Boko haram is not what it used to be. While they were firmly holding 14 out of 774 local governments when we came in, they are not holding any local government now. What they have resorted to is using improvised explosive devices to cause maximum casualties on soft targets as they did yesterday,” he said.
