Nigerian troops have killed several field commanders of Boko Haram terrorists and destroyed more of their training camps in the Sambisa Forest.
The acting Director Public Relations of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani K. Usman, made the disclosure late on Wednesday.
Usman said: “Troops of 7 Division Nigerian Army cleared several terrorists strong points and training camps within Sambisa forest, Borno State, Nigeria. The troops have also rescued additional women and children. They have been evacuated to a safety zone for further processing. During the encounter unfortunately we lost a soldier, while four others were wounded in action.”
The Army’s spokesperson also mentioned that armoured vehicles and ammunitions were also recovered from the terrorists.
