“During the offensive, four Boko Haram terrorists met their waterloo in the hands of gallant troops of the Nigerian Army. Some of the terrorists fled the place and abandoned their weapons. Some of the weapons abandoned by the terrorists are seven den guns,” the statement read.

Earlier this week, soldiers of 5 Brigade Task Group cleared five more Boko Haram camps at Hausari and Baranga in Marte local government areas of Borno state.

During the battle with the insurgents at the camps, troops killed two militants and found two Dane guns and a Double Barrel gun. Fleeing Boko Haram members left 12 motorcycles that were later destroyed by the military.

In order to provide the general public with accurate and real time information on military operations in the region, Nigerian army has recently established a media centre in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

Gusau noted that the establishment of the centre was based on the directive of the chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai.
