Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi (retd), on Thursday, declared that Nigeria is now ‘bleeding.’
Addressing correspondents at the presidential ministerial briefing organised by the Presidential Communication Team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, he said while the incidence of domestic terrorism had reduced due to measures put in place by the government, other problems arising from intolerance have heightened.

He also confirmed that some individuals who fund Boko Haram have been arrested particularly in Kano State.
