Nigerian Army Destroys Boko Haram Camps in Sambisa

Nigerian Army Destroys Boko Haram Camps in Sambisa
Sat Sep 12, 2015 11:32:44

The Nigerian Army destroyed camps of the terrorist group Boko Haram in Bitta and Tokumbere, areas in Sambisa forest, in the northeastern state of Borno, something that could hurry the end of the sect up, a military spokesman reported today.

Colonel Sani Usman, Public Relations Director of the Defense Ministry, confirmed important progress in the operation Lafiya Dole, aimed at eliminating the last redoubts of the fundamentalists in that forest region.

In the first half of 2015, Boko Haram lost the majority of the almost 30,000 square kilometers of territory that it occupied by the end of 2014 and was forced to withdraw its forces to bases in the thick Sambisa forest.

A strong offensive unleashed in February by Nigerian troops, together with a multinational force of 8,000 soldiers, and also composed of Cameroonian, Chadian, and Nigerian troops, evicted the group from dozens of towns and cities they were occupying, especially in the states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.
