Nigerian military reclaims more territories from Boko Haram

The National Information Centre (NIC) said the Nigerian Army has reclaimed more territories from the insurgents in the ongoing counter terrorism in the north east.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja, the Director General of the National Information Centre, Mr Mike Omeri, said the Army is now in full control of these recovered territories in Borno and Adamawa states.

Over ten communities are said to have been recovered by the military including Mubi, Gamboru-Ngala, Hong, Monguno, Baga and Gombi.

Mr Omeri, however raised an alarm over what he described as ”continuous radicalization” and recruitment of Nigerian youths abroad into terrorist organisations.

In recent times, the military had said that it has recovered various territories that was taken by the Boko Haram terrorist group.

Maj General Olukolade, the spokesman for the military had said that truck loads of rice, beans and other logistics meant for the terrorists operating around Baga were also captured.

He also said that the air and land operations had continued, with aggressive advance towards other designated communities and locations meant to be cleared in the ongoing offensive against the Boko Haram members.
