In response to demands of Nigerians for some evidence to support the complete routing of insurgents who attempted to capture Konduga on Friday, September 13, 2014 the Nigerian military has released some pictures from the battle scene.

However, in deference to sensibilities of Nigerians, pictures that may offend the senses were not included.

PRNigeria was told that the pictures were released only for the purpose of reassuring our compatriots that the military is capable and ready to defend them.

It could be recalled that after about three hours of fierce fighting yesterday, Nigerian troops routed the Boko Haram fighting force of over a hundred terrorists.

Further to the staggering loss of men, Boko Haram also suffered extensive losses in their  equipment.

In a previous statement by Colonel Timothy Antigha of Army Public Relations Directorate three Hilux and one Buffalo vehicles with mounted Anti-aircraft guns, three General Purpose Machine guns, over 30 AK 47 rifles and two global positioning systems have been recovered among other items.

Four Nigerian soldiers were wounded in action. The entire area is still being combed for terrorists who may have escaped with bullet wounds.

Morale of Nigerian troops remains very high according to the military sources.
