Buhari, in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu,  stated that 'putting an end to this senseless loss of innocent lives remains a top priority of this administration. Over the past few weeks, the Nigerian military have made significant advancements in an offensive aimed at slamming the final nail in the coffin of Boko Haram.
