The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism (CATE) says the North-East region is closer to safety following the killing of high-ranking Boko Haram commander,  Amir Goni Maina.

Goni Maina was the acclaimed Governor of Lake Chad Tumbuns.

He reportedly perceived the area as his territory from where he ‘orchestrated’ several deadly attacks.

It was reported that the once-invisible terror kingpin, however, met his waterloo on Wednesday, following an offensive by the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Gabriel Onoja, on Thursday, the CATE applauded the military, its leadership and the troops that carried out the successful operation in line with President Buhari’s order.

According to the coalition, Goni Maina’s death is a befitting consequence for the massacre of scores of farmers in Koshobe and Zabarmari areas of Borno State.

It further charged the troops to maintain the momentum and fish out all the remnants of terrorists in the Lake Chad region.

The group, however, assured that with the demise of Goni Maina and sustained onslaught by the troop, the North-East region would soon experience a new lease of life.
