Nigerian Muslim Leader Underlines Imminent Defeat of Boko Haram

Politics - One of Nigeria's most powerful Muslim leaders, the emir of Kano, expressed optimism that the insurgency of Boko Haram Takfiri group will soon be over.

"I say help is on the way. Terror must and will be defeated. All it requires is the good leaders, uncommon courage and unrelenting determination, and victory will be ours," Muhammad Sanusi II said, AFP reported.

"We will together see the end of them and their reign of terror," Sanusi added.

Boko Haram, whose name means "western education is forbidden," says its goal is to overthrow the Nigerian government.

It has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly shooting attacks and bombings in various parts of Nigeria since the beginning of its operations in 2009, which have left more than 12,000 people dead so far.
