There is ongoing war between Troops and terrorist group Boko Haram in Borno State.
A statement signed by the acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman informed that the troops covered by the Air Force, have made significant gains.
“As part of Operation GAMA AIKI, troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE and Multinational Joint Task Force captured Mallam Fatori in northernmost part of Borno State after a fierce battle closely covered by air operations. However, the terrorists reinforced around border with Niger Republic.
“This was while the troops were consolidating on this success. The troops killed several of the Boko Haram terrorists in the resulting encounter and subsequently had to withdraw to a vantage position.The Operation is continuing,” it said.
Though the statement did not state the number of casualties on both sides, AUTHENTIC News Daily suspects that it may be high, considering the renewed vow of the terror group to unleash mayhem.
