Nigerian military forces appears to have finally recreated themselves and are winning the battles against Boko Haram terrorists operating in North Eastern Nigeria.
Competent military sources disclosed that that early this morning, September 17, 2014, military troops successfully crushed an apparent revenge mission by the terrorists who attempted another march on the Borno State town where over 100 of them were killed last week.
After a fierce battle lasting more than 12 hours in the outskirts of the town, scores of the terrorists were killed by military forces.
“Right now, our troops are combing the vicinity of the battle scene in a cordon and search operation to determine the exact casualty figures suffered by the terrorists in the encounter,” a defence source declared.
During the encounter, three Hilux vehicles, one armoured personnel carrier and a cache of arms and ammunition were confirmed captured from the terrorists by Nigerian troops.
Defence Headquarters issued an official statement on the operation, posting on its blog, this afternoon:
“Troops this morning successfully crushed another attempt by terrorists who were on a revenge mission to Konduga, after 12 hours of fighting in the outskirts of the Borno State community. Troops are now combing the vicinity, in a cordon and search operation to determine the heavy casualties suffered by the terrorists in the encounter.
“Meanwhile, 3 Hilux vehicles, 1 Amoured Personnel Carried and a cache of arms and ammunition were confirmed captured by the troops.”
