Lake Chad countries warned over Boko Haram 'victory' claims

Soldiers from the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army stand outside the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok in Borno State north-eastern Nigeria on March 25, 2016Countries hit by Boko Haram violence were warned on Wednesday not to make premature claims of victory, despite the Islamist group being pegged back by a sustained military counter-insurgency. “Though the military response to Boko Haram has become more cogent, the Lake Chad states should not too quickly proclaim ‘mission accomplished’,” the International Crisis Group said. “Even if they are made to abandon all territorial pretensions in Nigeria’s northeast and the Lake Chad area, or are forced to abandon their guerrilla war, some Boko Haram militants at least are likely to seek to continue their insurgency in some form, probably through terror attacks,” the security analysts added.
