Army Clears More Boko Haram Camps In Borno
Troops of the Nigerian army operating in Bama axis on a fighting patrol have cleared Boko Haram terrorists out of Aulari general area located within the Sambisa forest.

According to a statement issued by Colonel Sani Usman, the director of army public relations, the troops cleared all the four camps located within the area: Faldan, Kidiziromari, Kuroshini, Kurumari and Ngulda.

During the military operation one member of the Boko Haram sect was killed while trying to escape and about 31 people were rescued from the insurgents.

“The troops discovered stockpile of farm produce in metal drums, sacks and underground storage facilities. Other items recovered included several bicycles and motorcycles. Some of the farmlands yet to be harvested were also set ablaze by the terrorists. A wooden rifle used for training and practice by the terrorists was also retrieved.”

In a related development, troops of 7 Division Garrison conducted eight fighting patrols along Leje Axis.

Usman said that the troops cleared the area and about 15 other villages around Leje. They include Khadadamamari, Ladin Buta, Hilmari, Kashauri, Keshan Ngala, Aiwa, Masu Kura, Mabirni, Grza 1 and 2, Mashuari, Dubenge, Tauba and Majande.

“Troops also pursued and destroyed 2 Boko Haram terrorists on motor cycles. Troops have also blocked all known routes to prevent Boko Haram Terrorists from transporting livestock across borders. All these are with a view to stopping the Boko Haram from fueling their terror machines through cattle rustling and illegal trading,” he said.

Usman called on Nigerians to continue providing security agencies with credible information about all known and suspected terrorists.
