Nicholas also commended the Nigerian Airforce for the air support given to the ground troops and the frequent aeriel bombardment on any perceived camp of the insurgence in the sambisa forest.
The Nigerian Army working closely with the Nigerian Airforce has taken advantage of the favourable weather condition to have dealt an heavy and decisive blow on the formation of the insurgency and this has made their commander Abubakar Shakau, took to his heels abandoning his followers to continue the fight.
He was described as a coward by the military for deserting the theatre dressed like a woman in hijab and occasionally interchanged his hijab form black to blue.
In a recent report, the Army has placed a bounty of N3m Naira on Abubakar Shakau for any useful information that could led to his arrest.
