Nigerian troops clear Yobe of Boko Haram terrorists – DHQ

The Nigeria military on Monday said government troops have cleared Yobe State of Boko Haram terrorists.

In a tweet Monday, the defence headquarters said Yobe, one of the three states under state of emergency due to insurgency attack in the region, was completely cleared of insurgents on Monday morning.

“FLASH: Troops have this morning completed clearing terrorists out of #Goniri in YOBE state #COINUpdate #VictoryForNigeria #NeverAgain,” the DHQ tweeted.

Yobe State is the second state, after Adamawa, the military has successfully flushed out Boko Haram terrorists from its environs.

The military had on Friday announced it discovered a bomb-making factory in Yobe state.

The Defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, said a cordon-and-search operation led to discovery of the factory located in a fertilizer company. He added that the location was used for the production of all kinds of IEDs.

Troops had on Thursday liberated Adamawa State from the control of insurgents having recaptured Madagali from Boko Haram.

This recent development leaves Borno state as the only state where Boko Haram has presence.

The Nigerian military, in collaboration with coalition forces, has recorded a string of successes against Boko Haram over the last one month.

    I wonder what the APC propagandists will find to say about that. They have fed off doom and gloom for so long rather than offering a proper alternative that I doubt they can even channel good news anymore.

      Only they feel sad when learning such news. I rejoice with all my heart. BH’s time has come.
