Following the killing of many people in Borno by Boko Haram/Islam in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists, President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the people of Nigeria over the sad incident.
The incident which occurred in Gubio village deeply shocked the president.
This was disclosed in a statement by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Wednesday, June 10.
Buhari who forcefully condemned the incident charged the armed forces to extract a heavy price from the attackers.
He also called on the military to bring back all those they kidnapped and a large number of cattle rustled.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that hours after Boko Haram insurgents killed the villagers, troops of the Nigerian Army, on Wednesday, June 10, retaliated in the offensive around Sambisa forest.
Legit.ng gathered that before attacking the Koloram village, the Boko Haram members had earlier unleashed terror on the residents of Malam Karamti village and Daban Shatta.
They accused the villagers of spying on them before torching every household, leaving the village in ruins as locals who managed to escape the onslaught returned in tears with their loved one soaked in blood.
Apart from the fact that soldiers of Operation Lafiya Dole neutralised many terrorists in the state, the insurgents' hideout in the Kacha Korle area of the ill-fated forest was destroyed, Channels TV reports.
This victory for the military was confirmed on Wednesday by Major General John Enenche, the coordinator of the Defence media operations.
In his report, Enenche disclosed that the hideout was always a meeting and staging point for the terrorists.
He revealed that the victory was as a result of intelligence gathering by the Air task force that dealt a devastating blow on the location.
The commander said: “Overhead the target area, many BHT fighters were observed in and around some prominent structures. These were engaged in successive passes by the attack aircraft leading to the destruction of some of the structures as well as the neutralization of several of the terrorists.”
