Members of the Nigerian terrorist group took to their heels on Saturday after soldiers attacked their enclave.
The troops of 5 Brigade attacked Boko Haram enclave in Douro, near Damasak Borno State.
The Nigerian Army disclosed this on Sunday via its official Facebook page.
However, it is not clear whether some of the terrorists were killed during the operation.
“Troops of 5 Brigade on fighting patrol to BHT/ISWAP enclave in the Douro near Damasak in Borno State on Saturday 29 Jan 22 infiltrated the terrorist location.
“During the attack, terrorists fled in disarray, abandoning their gun trucks & weapons. Aggressive patrols are currently ongoing,” the post read.
The fight against insurgency has been ongoing for over a decade, with its headquarter in Borno State.
The insurgents have killed thousands of Nigerians and displaced millions since its deadly operation.
The Nigerian government, past and present, had made several assurances to bring the situation under control; however, the terrorists have continued to attack soft targets while kidnapping for ransom has spread across the country.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
