Troops of the Nigerian Army have cleared a Boko Haram enclave in Borno State nicknamed “Abuja Town,” following their ongoing counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations in parts of the North East.
The Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), Colonel Sani Usman, made the development known in a statement, saying the troops also recovered several items from the Boko Haram remnants. He said, “This is in its bid to finally bring the terrorists’ insurgency to an end. In the process, the gallant troops have once again dealt heavy operational blow on the Boko Haram terrorists logistic cells,” he stated.
“The troops invaded Yerwa and Kaluketu, where the Boko Haram terrorists kept rustled cows.
“The troops also attacked and cleared an enclave which they called “Abuja town” named after Nigeria’s capital city reflecting its significance and bustling life, as well as serving as their Logistics exchange point in the North East,” he added.
During the operation, Usman said, the troops killed four Boko Haram terrorists and recovered two AK-47 rifles with registration numbers 58010938 and 58008270 respectively.
