NIGERIAN TROOPS TAKE OVER BOKO HARAM BASE IN BORNO STATE
The Nigerian Tribune reports that, Nigerian troops have cleared and taken over Balmo forest in Borno state, capturing terrorists and armed gangs in a military operation at the weekend.
That, this was disclosed by the Director of Defense Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, in a statement on Monday. Among those captured were two foreigners, who were suspected to be mercenaries, including several weapons, power generating sets, communication equipment, vehicles, motorcycles, foodstuff and kitchen utensils.
Prior to this clear-out, Balmo forest, which stretches from Bauchi through Jigawa states, with links to the fringes of Sambisa forest, had served as a base and hideout for launching attacks by terrorists.
Wow! That’s a giant stride by the Nigerian Military in the cause for putting an end to this insurgency.
When will the troops go to Sambisa Forest?
