The death of a large number of terrorists has been announced by Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters in a formal statement on the ongoing attack on Boko Haram’s strongholds in Sambisa Forest and Gwoza, both in Borno State in Nigeria’s troubled North-East.

Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, said in a statement just e-mailed to News Express: “A concerted air campaign by the Nigerian Air Force is ongoing in furtherance of the mission to clear terrorists from all their enclaves. The air strikes which today targeted the training camps and logistics dumps of the terrorists in Sambisa forests and parts of Gwoza have been highly successful as it achieved the aims with required precision. The death of a large number of terrorists has been recorded while many others are also scampering all over the forest and out of the struck bases. Details of casualty will be determined in subsequent phases of the operation.

“Meanwhile, the strikes continue in other locations of the theatre heralding the advance of troops and other elements of the mission.”
