ABUJA - The Nigerian Army has continued its offensive operations claiming to have destroyed all of Boko Haram terrorists' camps and enclaves around the dreaded Alagarno and Sambisa forests.

On Tuesday, troops of 81 Battalion and 251 Task Force Battalion patrol team, cleared Boko Haram camps located at Komala, Dole, Kumshi and Moadori around the fringes of Alagarno forest.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, in a statement said troops killed two Boko Haram terrorists and captured two notorious terrorists binging down all of Boko Haram terrorist flags hoisted in the village.

He claimed that the Nigerian troops also recovered two Toyota pickup vans, forty motorcycles, Improvised Explosives Making Devices (IEDs), stockpile of foodstuffs and fuel dump. The patrol team also recovered horses and donkeys used for transportation by the terrorists.

Colonel Usman indicated that both wounded civilians and military personnel are receiving treatment at the unit's Regimental Aid Post.

This success was recorded as a result of the quick response to a distress call of an attack by Boko Haram terrorists on Kuda village along Butuku road, troops of 143 Battalion swung into action, unfortunately the terrorists fled after setting the village on fire that led to the death of an elderly woman.

The escaped insurgents regrouped and attempted to cross through Magar Bridge but they were pre-empted by elements of the Battalion who killed two terrorists and wounded several others.
