Nov. 27, 2013

There is unconfirmed report that military troops in Borno State carried out another successful operation at Sambisa forest on Monday, leaving no fewer than 100 Boko Haram militants dead.

A source who spoke to DailyPost in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, said it is believed that many camps might have been destroyed as well.

DailyPost reports that military helicopter and fighter jets were seen hovering around the state capital and heading towards the Sambisa forest.

It would be recalled that when the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General, Azubuike Ihejirika addressed the officers at the 7 Division Nigerian Army headquarters in Maiduguri, he urged them to prepare and make necessary sacrifice to bring an end to insurgency in Borno and North-East in general.

A response is still being awaited on an email message sent to the spokesman of the 7 Division Nigerian Army, Col Muhammad Dole, for confirmation of the military attacks.
