Information and Culture minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said suicide bombings on soft targets may continue beyond the December 2015 deadline given by President Muhammadu Buhari to the military to rout out Boko Haram from the nation's Northeast. The Minister, however said, the ongoing military campaign against the Boko Haram terrorists in the North-east will ensure that all territories hitherto captured by the terrorists are liberated by the deadline.
Mohammed stated this on Sunday in Maiduguri, when he paid a one day official visit to Borno State. Lai Mohammed in his words said, “What the military can do is only to liberate all our territories from the hold of Boko Haram members. If we think that there will be no more bombings after December, it is not feasible. There might be bombing of soft targets, but we as a government, will ensure that all our territories are liberated from Boko Haram terrorists,” he said.
