The Nigerian military on Tuesday said more Boko Haram camps have been destroyed in a latest onslaught against the insurgent group.
Dozens of kidnapped women and children held captive by Boko Haram terrorists were also rescued.
The Defence Headquarters said the “troops advancing to wipe off all known Boko Haram terrorists camps towards Banki, Kumshe axis and Bama axis have cleared 4 more camps earlier today.”
The troops also destroyed the terrorists’ “camps at Bolungu 1 and 2, Bula Doye and Cheehi Dare and secured a very important bridge linking the towns of Miyanti and Banki in Borno State.”
The DHQ said, “the clearance by ground troops and aerial bombardments by the Nigerian Air Force” will be intensified till the objective of defeating the terrorists is achieved.
