The Nigerian Army has announced the capture of a strategic Boko Haram location in Borno State christened Abuja town by the terrorists.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said the feat was achieved on Friday by troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B attached to 22 Brigade, who “embarked on aggressive mobile fighting patrol in support of the ongoing offensive operations in Sambisa forest.”

“In the process, the gallant troops have once again dealt heavy operational blow on the Boko Haram terrorists logistic cells,” Col. Usman said in a statement issued late on Saturday.

According to him, “The troops invaded Yerwa and Kaluketu, where the Boko Haram terrorists kept rustled cows. The troops also attacked and cleared an enclave which they called “Abuja town” named after Nigeria’s capital city reflecting its significance and bustling life, as well as serving as their Logistics exchange point in the North East.

“During the operation the troops killed 4 Boko Haram terrorists and recovered 2 AK-47 rifles with registration numbers 58010938 and 58008270 respectively. The troops also recovered 29 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition, 1 Dane gun, 1 Bow and Arrow, 2 Laptop computers and 6 mobile telephone handsets. Others include a big truck and 5 motor cycles.”
