Nigeria’s Special Forces engaged in the on-going counter-terrorism campaign in the country’s North have cleared Delwa, Mustafari, Manga, Wanga and Damboa of terrorists who have been rampaging in the communities. 

“The special operation which began early in the week is meant to restore law and order to the area and apprehend all terrorists who have been operating in the locality,” Defence Headquarters said in a breaking news uploaded this afternoon on the website of its Information Department. “The operation which has so far lasted 40 hours has dove-tailed into the mop up phase during which the remnants of insurgents are being cleared from the communities. The mop up phase will also ascertain the casualties as additional efforts are also been made to ensure the protection of innocent civilians during the operation,” DHQ said.

It added that “meanwhile, troops are also involved in manoeuvres to apprehend terrorists who have been attacking Gwoza and surrounding localities since Tuesday causing the death of many civilians.”
