Sambisa: Sheriff hails military, says I'm vindicated
Sheriff who made the remark during his working visit to Makurdi in Benue State also expressed gratitude that the dismantling of the sect from the forest was a vindication that he does not have any link with the terrorist group as insinuated by his perceived political opponents.

"The military have cleared Sambisa forest and I want to thank them. I'm the number one causality of Boko haram. I have lost very close relatives which included; my cousins, my candidate and others were all killed by Boko haram.

"Those of us who are from Borno State knows what we have suffered in the hands of the sect. The irony of it all is that those who feared my political career turned around to say that I created Boko haram but God has vindicated me'" he said.

The factional chairman nevertheless insisted that he had never had any connection with Boko Haram as he commended the Nigeria Army for their gallantry in decimating the terrorist group.
