The Army has said that Boko Haram terrorists are fleeing their camps, abandoning their vehicles and food items at Kotambe Kote and Jere axis, Borno State.
This was made known in a statement by the army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, through PR Nigeria.
The statement reads: “The military offensive against the Boko Haram terrorists is becoming more unbearable on them as they flee their camps abandoning vehicles, flags and foodstuffs at Kotambe Kote and Jere axis.
“In a related development, troops of 101 Battalion along with members of Nigeria Police Explosive Ordinance Device (EOD) team, today successfully detonated two bicycles laden with primed improvised explosive devices at Awaisari village near Alou Dam.”
Earlier this year, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the newly appointed service chiefs to eliminate insurgency in the Northeast.
In a renewed offensive against the terrorists, the troops have carried out numerous successful operations, including the rescue of captives, storming camps, blocking supplies, detonating bombs and arresting Boko Haram’s key figures.
