Troops of 111 Special Forces Battalion, 7 Division Garrison of the Nigerian Army, have destroyed a factory where the extremist Boko Haram manufactured rockets, the spokesperson for the Army, Sani Usman, has said.
Mr. Usman, a colonel, said the factoryat Jamrari was uncovered and destroyed during a special raid operation carried out on Tuesday at the Delwa general area.
“This unprecedented development has put paid to the much touted ability of the terrorists to fabricate rockets and their launchers using rudimentary materials,” Mr. Usman said.
He added, “This has further crippled the terrorists and greatly embolden the troops in carrying out more offensive actions against the terrorists till they are defeated.
“The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, who is on constant communication with the troops, commended them for this singular act and other similar feats and encouraged them to do more more so that the terrorists are on the verge of being defeated.”
