In its continued rampage through Boko Haram infested territories in the North East, Nigerian troops on Sunday night invaded Kukawa Geri, Gujba in Yobe State determined to flush out the insurgents from their remaining hideouts.
In a simple tweet earlier today, Nigerian Defence Headquarters said “troops are dominating operations in Kukawa, Geri, Gujba in Yobe to rid the terrorists on Sunday.”
The troops have maintained the winning ways discovered since Defence Headquarters asked for a six-week postponement of elections for the military to be able to make every part of the country especially the north east safe and conducive for conduct of the general elections.
Since then, most of the local governments and communities previously occupied by terrorists in most of the affected states have been liberated.
