Troops of 115 Task Force Battallion under 28 Task Force Brigade have, in a major boost, cleared nine more Boko Haram terrorists strongholds around Lassa axis of Borno State in Nigeria’s North-East.

A statement by a military spokesman, Colonel Tukur Gusau, said the troops cleared Lassa, Muthavo, Dagu Kumabza, Isge, Unworo Zangore, Kilekasa and Pumpum while on clearance operations between November 3 and 5.

During the offensive, four Boko Haram terrorists met their waterloo in the hands of gallant troops of the Nigerian Army, he said.

Some of the terrorists fled, abandoning their weapons. The military spokesman said they left seven den guns, Col. Gusau added.

He said that in a related development on Thursday, Troops of 25 TF Bde, conducted another offensive operations along Korede axis in Damboa Local Government Area of the state.

“In the operations, three motorcycles, suspected to be used during the last Sunday’s attack on Azir village, were recovered along with stolen food stuffs from the village,” Col. Gusau said, adding:

“Terrorists observation posts were destroyed in a high ground in Korede.

“While the fighting spirit of the troops remain very high, they have continued to dominate roads leading to Azir, Wajikoro, Damboa and Biu towns to deny Boko Haram Terrorists any possible freedom of activities in the area.” (Channels TV)
