Nigeria​n​ military destroy terrorist havens in five communities

The Nigerian military ha​s succeeded in destroying terrorists’ hideouts in five communities – Baga, Gwoza, Sambisa, Bama and Pulka – in the North Eastern Nigeria, ​PRNigeria has said.

The media outlet​,​ which distributes press releases for security agencies in Nigeria​,​ released a video showing an aerial bombardment of a location.

PRNigeria said the ​attack occurred during an operation involving the Air Force and some ground troops.

In the two-minute video, people could be seen scampering within a settlement while houses were being razed down from the airstrikes.

Also, people were ​seen​ running in-between trees and homes in search for safety.

​The Nigerian military has raised its momentum against the Boko Haram sect in the last two weeks.

On Monday, in a statement, the Defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, said the military’s six-week operation have been successful.

Mr. Olukolade also noted that the cordon and search operation have revealed that many of the terrorists disguise as women to evade arrest.
