Nigerian troops engaged in spiritual warfare to counter infamous Boko Haram propaganda, Nigerian Chief of Army Staff Tukur Buratai said.
Brig.-Gen. Timothy Olowomeye, the Director Civil Military Affairs, who was representing Buratai said at the 2019 Chaplains annual Training Conference and Retreat on Tuesday in Sokoto.
”We were involved in a joint seminar on Spiritual Warfare as an effective means against insurgency and other forms of restiveness,” he said.
”Boko Haram and the likes cannot be defeated by kinetic military warfare alone.
”Finding appropriate counter-narratives against these violent extremist sects will immensely be a big push towards eradicating their negative activities in Nigeria,” he said.
on Tuesday, Islamic State backed Boko Haram released a video showing how it killed two Nigerian troops.
Nigerian government has always claimed that the army has degraded the terrorist group.
