Nigerian Army advancing troops along Banki axis yesterday afternoon cleared more terrorist camps and captured weapons, flags and improvised explosives (IEDs) devices at Jangolori and Bulaburma villages.

In a statement issued in Abuja last night, the acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said, “The recovered items have confirmed earlier intelligence that the terrorists often used corrugated metal roofing sheets and bathroom slippers in making improvised explosive devices which affect troops advance. In addition, it is quite clear that the campaign against the terrorists is yielding the desired result because they are fast running out of arms, ammunitions and other logistics.”

Usman added: “It is equally important to state and commend the synergy, intelligence and information sharing between our own forces and those of our neighbouring countries under the Multinational Joint Task Force. Consequently, the troops are quite optimistic that the Boko Haram terrorists would be defeated very soon.

“The Nigerian Army wishes to call on patriotic citizens to please continue to avail troops with information. Our collective effort will continue to lead to more successes until the terrorists are completely defeated. We however wish to further state as the terrorists are on the run; there is need for more vigilance and security consciousness among all. Consequently, there is need for more alertness among all to pre-empt the terrorists and other criminal elements in the society.”
