Boko Haram terrorists have finally been flushed out of Munguno, Marte and neighbouring communities in Borno State, North-East Nigeria.

“Troops in a military operation spearheaded by highly coordinated air assaults have completed the mission of clearing terrorists from Monguno and environs this morning,” Director Defence Information Major General Chris Olukolade, said this afternoon in Abuja.

“A number of terrorists as well as truck loads of rice, beans and other logistics meant for resupply to the terrorists operating around Baga have been captured in the course of operation. Casualty inflicted and arms recovered as well as other outcome of the operation in Munguno, Marte and other communities already secured, will be determined after the ongoing cordon and search in the environs,” the Defence Spokesman said in a statement.

He added that “the air and land operation is continuing with aggressive advance towards other designated communities and locations meant to be cleared in the ongoing offensive against the terrorists.” 

Olukolade promised to make more details available later.

The military has promised to subdue Boko Haram before the rescheduled general elections on March 28 an April 11.
