Determined to completely liberate North East from the jugular of Boko Haram insurgents, Nigerian military have raided the Sambisa forest, and demolished one of the guard posts of Boko Haram insurgents.
The successful attack on the camp, led to the killing of some terrorists.
It was gathered that during the attack on the “evil forest,” which has for some time become the den for Boko Haram insurgents, Nigerian troops set ablaze Boko Haram flags, arms, weapons, launchers and motorcycle recovered in the camp.
Sambisa is an expanse of forest with different camps occupied by armed insurgents and the one decimated by troops is one out of many of such camps.
Colonel Sani Usman, Army’s spokesman, expressed happiness over the progress made by the military in ensuring that the December Presidential deadline is kept.
President Muhammadu Buhari while decorating new service chiefs in July gave three-months deadline for the Nigerian military to crush the insurgency.
The military recently said that it would capture Sambisa forest, the hideout of the Boko Haram terrorists, before the December presidential deadline.
