One of the biggest lies ever told by any government in the history of Nigeria is that Boko Haram has been “technically defeated”. Boko Haram has not been defeated. It is, in fact, waxing stronger. Any government spokesman, presidential media assistant or service chief, who says that Boko Haram has been defeated, will be answerable to God for every life that Boko Haram has destroyed. Nigerians have the right and duty to interrogate government on the level of insecurity in this country. But instead of honest responses, they are insulted by Presidential spokespersons who combine insolence and mendacity.
