Army vows to retake Damboa village, Borno from Boko Haram

The Nigerian Army on Monday, vowed to retake Damboa village in Borno State, allegedly taken over by the Boko Haram sect.

Speaking during a security briefing in Abuja, the Director of Defence Information, Brigadier-General Chris Olukolade, said no portion of country’s land would be conceded to any terrorist group, insisting that insecurity in Damboa would be reversed.
“We are not conceding any portion of the country to terrorist groups.

“We are sure that Nigeria security agencies are firm with deployment to that area, patrol are active and we are going to reverse any form of security threat around the area,” he said.
Olukolade, however, denied the report that insurgents had hoisted their flag in Damboa village.
“I will not be stampeded to endorse what you read on social media. Nobody, I repeat, will be allowed to hoist any flag in any portion of land belonging to this country,” he said.
