The acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, has revealed that Nigerian troops on Thursday dislodged Boko Hararm terrorists from Dissa and Balazala villages located in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State. During the operation, “they rescued 23 men, 33 women and 34 children from the terrorists.”

“In a related development, troops advancing from Bama have also intercepted quite a number of Boko Haram terrorists fleeing from Dara Jamel near Banki the battle zone disguised as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). The intercepted persons are being screened by troops of 21 Brigade for more information and confirmation of their true identity,” Col. Usman said in a statement issued in Abuja.

He said that “to further assist returnees and other Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) with education of their children, the Nigerian military (on Thursday) reopened a mixed Primary School in Gwoza, Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.”

The Army Spokesman assured that “the military in conjunction with other security agencies and other security stakeholders have placed adequate security measures to ensure the pupils and teachers’ safety and security. Already classes have commenced and the turnout was quite impressive.”

He noted that “the reopening of the combined primary school in Gwoza is significant as the eradication of western education is part of the aims of Boko Haram in their murderous campaign of terror,” adding: “Gradual restoration of normalcy by troops is therefore indicative of the continuous elimination of the terrorists from Nigerian territory.”
