Scores of terrorists have been killed on Dikwa-Maiduguri road, PRNigeria, an organisation that circulates statements for Nigerian security agencies, has said.
The agency reports that Nigerian troops have increased the tempo of their onslaught against terrorists in the area, killing many.
It said this feat was achieved through a combined effort of ground troops and the Nigerian Air Force.
Recovered from the insurgents who fled the area include vehicles heavily laden with Improvised Explosives Devices, motorcycles, trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns, anti-aircraft gun and general purpose machine guns.
Also, the army spokesperson, Usman Sani, confirmed to the agency that recent military operations against the Boko Haram have been very successful as many of them are on the run.
He added that due to recent concerted efforts, roads and towns held by the insurgents and laced with mines, such as Biu-Buni Yadi-Damaturu and Biu-Sabon Gari-Damboa roads, were liberated and cleared of mines and made safe for public usage.
