According to The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the Boko Haram attacks have decreased during the presidency of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This was said on Tuesday during a phone interview with Newsmen by Rev. Isaiah Jirapye Magaji, the chairman of the top Christian group in Taraba state.
The Christian organization claims that if it claims that Buhari hasn’t made any good improvements to the frequency of Boko Haram assaults, it won’t be giving the real story.

Because the security forces have been able to restrict the operations of the armed insurrectionists, Magaji said that many people who were internally displaced by Boko Haram insurgents in the Northeast region have returned to their respective villages and homes.
However, according to Magaji, the government has been unable to combat the Boko Haram objective against Christians as it has taken on new and hidden dimensions.
He said, “For now, there are changes in the Boko Haram situation in the Northeast. If we say there are no changes, then we are not telling the truth.
“The changes, we have observed, are in terms of the constancy of armed attacks. That has been stopped and many of those internally displaced persons have returned to their homes.
“But you know the Boko Haram situation is based on a hidden agenda. When they execute a phase, they switch it off to create an impression the game is over before they move on to the next phase.

“We know that the Boko Haram situation in the Northeast was a planned thing to oust the Goodluck Jonathan administration and bring in a Muslim as president so that when he comes on board it will be as if he has brought peace, but then, they have gone underground to do other things.
“Except Taraba, you cannot buy land to erect a church building in other states of the northeast geopolitical zone.
“So, the second phase of the Boko Haram agenda is on, but not with guns and bombs as it used to be while the third phase of it is the kidnapping of pastors and armed banditry.”
