Nigerian military clears terrorists’ camps in counter offensive

Troops of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in a dawn raid operation on Friday cleared a terrorists’ camp in Buduram, north of Doron Baga, where terrorists were massing up and reorganizing to carry out a reprisal attack after being routed in Doron Baga in a previous encounter last Sunday.

The defence headquarters made this disclosure in a statement on its website Saturday.

The statement said, “seventeen terrorists died in the raid operation while some who escaped into neighbouring islands in the Lake Chad Peninsula are still being pursued”.

Meanwhile, the defence headquarters say calm has been restored in Doron Baga after the Sunday attack by terrorists who infiltrated the community with some of them disguising as women in hijab.

Five of the terrorist died in the counter offensive to defend Doron Baga by troops of the MNJTF.

Many of the inhabitants of the community who had fled into nearby bushes for safety are now returning, the statement said.
