Nigerian army on Tuesday reported significant gains in its fight against Boko Haram insurgents in the country’s northeast Borno State.
The Army said it had cleared out a key base of the insurgent group, Sabil Huda, located in the Sambisa forest – the last known hideout of the insurgents the army has said.
In the process, the Army rescued 46 captives held by the insurgents in its Operation Deep Punch aimed at clearing remnants of Boko Haram elements.
Photos shared by the army showed soldiers having retrieved armoured trucks and setting fire to the Sabil Huda Camp. Meanwhile, the theater commander of the main operation codenamed Lafiya Dole is expected to meet the press over developments in the operation.
