Nigerian military clears​ Yobe community of terrorists

The Nigerian military on Monday said it has ​flushed out terrorists operating in KukawaGeri, a community in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.

In a tweet on its official page, the Defence Headquarters said troops have taken control of operations in the community.

The DHQ also said cordon and search operations were ongoing in the area.

“FLASH: Troops are dominating OPs in #KukawaGeri, #Gubja in #YOBE, Rid of terrorists on Sunday. Cordon & Search ongoing there now #NeverAgain,” the DHQ tweeted.

In the past weeks, the Nigerian military ha​s​ recaptured various communities under the control of the Boko Haram​ terrorist sect.

Having recaptured ​more towns from the sect, President Goodluck Jonathan in company with the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, all service chiefs and the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, visited some of the liberated towns, including Mubi and Baga, last week.

The military ha​s​ also said that the ongoing six-week operation, which led to the postponement of Nigeria’s general elections, have so far been successful.

    Good ludk to our military and mr president.

    • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

      Give thanks to the soldiers not GEJ, keep going boys

      • Shehu Monguno

        Christoper, when our soldiers were fleeing from the battle field Nigerians including my humble self blamed GEJ as the commander In Chief. Now the reverse is the case, GEJ deserves the accolade

        • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

          Why did our soldiers flee the battle field?, because they were not properly equipped, they sentenced 54 innocents soldiers for not fighting Boko Haram without weapons.

          • Philip Musa

            the troops fled because your father is a piece of shit, sitting around and waiting for handouts from the government. Socialist clown!!!

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            Do you even know who my father is?, my father served this country as a soldier during the Nigerian Civil War, he risked his life to win us that war, and you call him a piece of shit, those troop are innocent men, those troops are someone’s father, those troops are someone’s son, those troops are someone’s husband and you see them as nothing but shit, you are an unpatriotic Nigerian, you say I receive handouts from the governments, but between me and you who sound like they are receiving handouts from the government?, you, your aggressive comment shows that you have been payed by GEJ to support him and to make sure he is famous online, you insult those troops , those men that are giving their lives for yours, do you think that if Boko Haram win they will leave the south alone?, no they will come for the rest of Nigeria and these men are making sure they don’t, so have some respect, and I am not a socialist, I am not a clown, listen to me is you know what is good for you the next time you insult my father, may the lord almighty strike you and your family down, may GOD punish you for insulting a man that has served this country with his life, thank you

  • Ken

    Kudos to our men in the field. Thanks to GEJ. He should do more.

    • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

      Give thanks to the soldiers not GEJ

      • Onome Curtis

        More thanks should go to GEJ for procuring the weapons currently used in decimating these bastards.

        • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

          Is is GEJ that go to fight on the frontline, who kills the bastards, during the Nigerian Civil War, the Nigerian soldiers didn’t need one kobo to win the war, they were motivated by the support of Nigerians, 4 years and Jonathan did not buy adequate weapons for the soldiers, he sentenced 54 innocent young men to death for mutiny, those innocent men are someone’s son, someone’s husband, someone’s father, yet they were given a death sentence, more thanks should go to the soldiers not GEJ

          • Philip Musa

            your argument is as dumb as APC’s decision to field a certificate-less candidate. Wake up to another 4 years of GEJ!

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            Your comments are as idiotic as the nonsense that comes out of the mouth of FFK and GEJ, wake up to a 4 years of GMB

          • Philip Musa

            …and your response is the “change” APC is preaching? When a scum of the earth (you) lacks the mental capacity of a fetus, his/her response is just as bad as lai mohammed/buhari/APC/shekau/boko haram’s! In the mean time, enjoy the freedom granted you by GEJ and the Nigerian troops!!

          • JibrilMusagroup

            APC is an axis of evil. I still wonder how APC was able to magnet and draw all the evil in Nigeria to itself and now become an axis of evil,a conclave of liars,wicked and satanic agents,rulers of darkness and every thing evil.can any one consider such a parade of wickedness Chris ngige of okija shrine,tinubu the satanic god father of Lagos, Obasanjo the monster, Atiku whom Obasanjo called thief and recently Mbadinuju accused of murdering a former MBA chief with his pregnant wife, liar Mohammed an old man in constant menstrual flow going about with diaper with mouth filled with lies and peddling falsehood. This are the vile felons and bankrupt characters being paraded as change agents to Nigeria. They want power returned to an old man so that we will remain sucking Nigeria. we say NO. President Goodluck is the best president in history of Nigeria. #goodluck4president

          • Shehu Monguno

            Christopher, credit must be given where it is due. If Generals like Buhari, Babangida, Abdulsalam and Obasanjo as head of states and president failed to kit and equip the army will you now crucify a Zoologist for waking up late in military matters?

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            It has been shown that during Buhari’s regime, the government bought more weapons than the administration of GEJ

          • Shehu Monguno

            Christopher, please provide proof of that. Till date there is no proof that GMB bought 1 bullet

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            Shehu, during the First Republic, security was much better and the Nigerian army was one of the most respected and most formidable in Africa, even during Buhari’s regime, so I’m wondering, how did you think they operated without weapons, if they did, (and I am talking about Buhari’s regime), so who bought the weapons?, thank you

          • Shehu Monguno

            On the contrary it was in the first republic we had the Tiv rebellion and the operation wette in what is today Western Nigeria. The Strength of the Nigerian Army had to be gradually built up during the Nigerian Civil War that is why it took almost 3 years to crush the Biafran army. The next big purchase of weapons for the armed forces was under President Shagari. The Nigerian air force Alfa Jets, naval warships etc. Under President Johnathan we are seeing the 3rd major arms build up. Most military heads of state fearing coups were reluctant to properly arm the Nigerian armed forces

          • Pete

            APC! ” ONE WEEK, ONE LIE! ”
            Agbo, what’s your next lie?

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            I’m not telling a lie, and please would you have the sense to call me Christopher not Agbo?, if you are going to call me Agbo then please call me Mr. Agbo, I know it is not a tradition in the south but please it is in the north, and also use your brain, who got rid of the Maitasine?, Buhari, the security was really better than the security in Nigeria, how many people died in the hands of terrorists in Buhari’s regime?, how many people have died in Jonathan’s regime?, Pete if that is really your name, I know the south don’t really care about how many people die in the North, but please I care, and God is giving GEJ till the 29th of March to pack his garbage out of the Aso Rock, corrupted southerner, sai Buhari.

          • Pete

            Logic turned upside down!
            But it’s GEJ that fights in the front lines when the troops lose.

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            Why do the troops lose?, because they do not have adequate weapons, who is meant to provide the weapons?, the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, his excellency: Badluck Ebere Jonadaft, get that into your head senseless southerner, and one more thing: SAI BUHARI

          • JibrilMusagroup

            On security, we wish to remind Buhari that Nigerians are still waiting for him to show them the investment he made in enhancing the military and security agencies, which suffered the worst type of deprivation under him. This sector has now been re-equipped by President Jonathan to effectively confront the security challenges facing our country.

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            Liar, during Buhari’s regime how many Nigerians died in the hands of terrorists?, and how many Nigerians have died in the hands of terrorists during Jonathan’s administration?, the Nigerian Military have been disgraced internationally, during Buhari’s regime they were one of the best military in Africa.

          • JibrilMusagroup

            Buhari suspended the constitution and led Nigerians by the nose, President Jonathan exhibited excellent democratic credentials by enhancing the rule of law wherein Nigerians, including Buhari now relish all kinds of personal freedoms which he denied the citizens during his rule.”

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            At least during his regime people were safe and the reputation of Nigeria was untarnished, but now more than 13,000 of our brothers and sisters in the North are dead under the nose of GEJ and his clowns, you are and hypocrite GEJ did nothing to help Nigerians, he destroyed our economy, destroyed our reputation, and caused the death of our fellow Nigerians, I’m sure you were paid by GEJ, you do not even deserve to be called a Jibril, by the grace of God, Buhari will become the president, AMEN.

      • Pete

        But you can blame Gej when the troops lose!

        • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

          Yes, because they lose because they do not have weapons, who is suppose to provide the weapons? GEJ. And next time when you want to ask me a question please remember to put a question mark not an exclamation mark, go back to school, illiterate southerner.

          • Pete

            You are pathetic!
            O Christ, what kind of spell has APC cast on some of our citizens that their brains have taken leave of them?
            I pray that this ill-wind called APC will pass as soon as possible.

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            You are pathetic!
            You were not meant to reply, bastardized southerner.
            O Christ, what kind of spell has PDP cast on some of our citizens that their brains have taken leave of them?
            I pray that this ill-wind called PDP will pass a soon as possible,
            Lest I forget, you are mugu, a bastard, a disgraced southerner, a person not even worthy of being in my presence, mumu, dididrin, oni ara, cocaine smoker, igbo smoker, how much did GEJ pay you?, IDIOTIC NONENTITY, USELESS SOUTHERNER, BASTARD, ONE MORE THING: #BUHAR4PRESIDENT.

          • Pete

            Why do you keep railing about “southerner” ?
            Do you realise that you are a parasite and a leech on the resources of the South?
            Without the South you’d be like the Chadians, Nigeriens, etc. selling water, shining shoes, pushing barrows begging and sleeping in shanties in Nigeria.
            Here you are with access to the internet and can ACTUALLY write in PASSABLE English.
            Please, don’t bite the finger that’s saving you from starvation!

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            You are a bastard, do you realize that without the North there would be no Nigeria, you will be like South Sudan and Somalia, trying to stay away from militants, almost all the military institutions in Nigeria are in the North, their universities are much more better than those in the south, and unlike you southerners, we have integrity, we are honest and we are not greedy, here you are able to type nonsense to me, please don’t bite the finger that gave you salvation.

  • bobjk

    Well done. This is indeed a miracle.

  • JibrilMusagroup

    Victory is ours. Nigeria will be free from every terrorist organisation soonest. our supports are with the security operatives. VICTORY IS GUARANTEED. We will all make it happen, the transformation we need is very possible with President Goodluck Jonathan so it’s President Goodluck for second term. #goodluck4president

    • bashdo

      God forbid Clueless for 2nd term!

      • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

        AMEN!

    • AD

      Before it was sabotage and APC behind boko haram the president never accepted the failure that he don’t act in time but now he is taking the credit shebi…. Make I tell u the blood of the 20,000 people that for not acting on time is in his and your hands

      • Pete

        You may wish to recall that Boko Haram named Buhari their chief negotiator in 2013.

        • AD

          They asked him but he refused look if you have evidence that buhari is boko boy please hand it over to relevant authorities and also this show your Gej does not have the balls to deal with Nigerians

          • Pete

            Ask yourself why you, AD, were not asked by Boko Haram to be their negotiator.
            The sensible deduction is that Buhari was nominated by Boko Haram because he’s either a part of them or he’s sympathetic to their cause.
            He proved the latter by condemning the FG’s strong response to them as an “attack against the North.” and asking that Boko boys should be pampered and rewarded for killing innocent people.
            APC has done a damned good EVIL job of deceiving many Nigerians about the truly bad nature of Buhari!

          • AD

            Lol I will like to know you better so that we can seat on a round table of tea and coffee if you’re in abuja please drop your digit, I believe Buhari is a better candidate than Gej that’s why I am supporting him and I’ve met both Gej and Gmb and I know what they both stand for I’ve a lot of friends in Gej government and I’ve a lot that work with Gmb I know what both of the group stand for and if please you can put out one corruption case against Gmb I will gladly vote for Gej that’s one and secondly I’ve seen how Gmb dealt a heavy blow in Maiduguri when he was GOC against same type of insurgency like boko boys and finally they approach GMB because he is the only former head of state a state man that they can trust because he always stands by the truth. The had problem with ali madu Shariff who was the governor and who used them to rig election and the federal government was not giving them any listening ears that was why the asked him, I willtell u more when we meet

          • Pete

            The same hackneyed hype about Buhari!
            Go to PTF records in Kaduna and see how biros were supplied for N100 each and ambulances were supplied for 13million naira each instead of 3million.
            We don’t need to LIE because we support a candidate.
            Buhari’s handlers have succeeded in deceiving people like you.
            Don’t bother to try to convince me because I’ve seen the records myself at No.7 Wurno Rd. Kaduna which is now occupied by ICPC.

  • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

    Keep on going soldiers, may God grant you guys more success against Boko Haram, and don’t forget the Chibok girls

    • JibrilMusagroup

      we wish to remind Buhari that Nigerians are still waiting for him to show them the investment he made in enhancing the military and security agencies, which suffered the worst type of deprivation under him. This sector has now been re-equipped by President Jonathan to effectively confront the security challenges facing our country.

      • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

        Stop repeating your comments, it is really annoying, #March4Buhari

        • JibrilMusagroup

          President
          Goodluck Jonathan is the Nigeria ‘Face of Monument’. Nigerians are wise and
          can’t be manipulated by some group of politicians who think they are smart to
          brain wash Nigerians. Time has come for transformation. We shall stand to
          continue with President Goodluck transformation agenda. That era of rascality
          and bragging is gone. With President Goodluck you are giving your life a
          meaning.

        • JibrilMusagroup

          We are not competing. If you are rented by APC, go and hang yourself because Goodluck MUST be President.

          • CHRISTOPHER AGBO

            We are not competing. If you are rented by PDP, go and hang your self because Buhari MUST be President

  • Colonel Mariama(rtd)

    QUESTION:
    WHERE IS MUHAMMADU BUHARI AS THESE THINGS ARE HAPPENING?
    IS HE STILL “RESTING” IN BRITAIN AND IS THIS THE LEADERSHIP HE PROMISED NIGERIANS?
    THOSE BRITISH DOCTORS ARE SURE AS HELL TAKING GOOD CARE OF HIM WITH A LOT OF MEDICATION.

    • Pete

      Buhari is actually missing!
      He’s somewhere in a London hospital.
      APC leaders are at their wit’s end.
      There’s a limit to what you can do with propaganda!

  • chi boss

    Our troops are dominating and fighting insurgency, our prayers is that God will give us victory over BH.. we will win this battle. #GEJ4NAIJA

  • korona melvin

    NIGERIA BELONGS TO ALL OF US, WE STAND THAT BH WILL BE WIPED OUT, WE SOLIDLY SUPPORT AND COMMEND THE EFFORTS OF OUR TROOPS. VICTORY FOR NIGERIA, PEACE WILL BE RESTORED AGAIN . #GEJ4NAIJA

    “An attack against Boko Haram is an attack against the North”
    – Muhammadu Buhari, 2014

  • jokesh

    Its a good news to Nigeria and a work well done to GEJ who is said this and has deliver his promise to wipe them out totally GOD BLESS NIGERIA #GEJ4NAIJA

  • dd

    Since the admission of Buhari to London Hospital, Boko Haram have known no rest. All their strategies keep failing. They won’t use International call to reach their Oga in London as it is well monitored by FBI.”An attack against Boko Haram is an attack against the North”- Muhammadu Buhari, 2014

  • AdemolaO

    Now the APC and their backers can’t blame the government for it’s handling of the crisis, it will say victory comes too late – while it is far from certain they would have done a better job. Keep in mind the lives of the worthy soldiers (not the
    handful of corrupt generals) who gave their lives to defeat the terrorists before you shamelessly blame the military or the government. A war is going on, this is more serious than political rhetoric.

  • Okwuchukwu

    The recent turn of events in the war against BH goes to show GEJ remains our best option. He is a true leader and a democrat (helping out the setting of a vote in a region where he will probably be behind his rival)
