The United Nations has revealed that an offensive is in the offing to rout the Boko Haram terrorist group that has made life a nightmare in the West Africa sub-region.

The revelation was made yesterday in Abuja by UN West Africa Representative, Mohamed Ibn Chambas, who said that a regional security operation against Boko Haram in West Africa is due to start at the end of the rainy season in a bid to put an end to their activities in the region.

A Channels TV report quoted Mr Chambas as saying that the expected joint raids would adapt to the changing tactics of the enemy.

His words: “The rainy season is always an opportunity for terrorist groups and extremist movements like that to hide in the forests to perpetrate the atrocities they commit in the Sahara, Sahel and Savanah zone.

“When the rainy season is over, it makes the movement of the military much easier and we expect to see a very aggressive approach against Boko Haram this coming dry season.”

Nigerian and Chadian forces early this year forced the terrorist group which has sworn allegiance to Islamic State, to cede large swathes of territory in northern Nigeria.
