Nigerian Troops Invade Sambisa Forest As December Deadline Nears

The Nigerian Army have apparently began its final push for the Boko Haram insurgents as they are now headed for the feared stronghold of the terrorist sect, Sambisa Forest.

The army, who have frequently promised to meet the December deadline to wipe out the insurgency in the Northeast given by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday revealed that the troops are moving towards the last known den of the insurgents.

Speaking to journalists at a press conference on the successes recorded in the last one week by the military in the insurgency-ravaged Northeast, the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen. Yusha’u Abubakar, according to Thisday reports said: “As I am talking to you, almost the entire troops in the theatre are moving towards the Boko Haram den.”
