Meanwhile, the chief of army staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, say Boko Haram activities are now restricted.
Buratai says members of the terrorist group are being contained with the recent renewed joined military offensive against them in northern Borno and border areas.
The army chief says the best way to handle the terrorists is to have concentration of forces. According to Buratai, the terrorists are now lurking around the borders, especially areas of the Tumbun and Islands (of Lake Chad).
