Troops of the Nigerian Army have
completely secured Monguno,
Marte and other communities in
the north of Borno State from Boko
Haram occupation.
The members of the Boko Haram
Sect had launched a massive attack
on Monguno from different
directions and captured the town
on January 25, 2015.
The Director of Defence
Information, Maj. Gen. Chris
Olukolade, said in a statement on
Monday that a combined operation
spearheaded by the Air Force had
completely cleared Monguno,
Marte and other towns in the
general area of terrorists.
Olukolade said that some terrorists
and arms and ammunition were
captured by troops during the
latest operation.
According to him, the troops also
captured truckloads of food items
such as rice and beans and other
logistics supply meant for the
members of the sect.
The Defence Spokesman said that
the casualty figure in the Monguno
attack would be made known on
completion of an ongoing cordon
and search operation in the area.
He said that the combined
operation was advancing with
aggression towards other
communities listed to be cleared of
terrorists’ presence in the area.
“Troops in a military operation
spearheaded by highly coordinated
air assaults have completed the
mission of clearing terrorists from
Monguno and environs this
morning.
“A number of terrorists as well as
truckloads of rice, beans and other
logistics meant for resupply to the
terrorists operating around Baga
have been captured in the course
of operation.
“Casualty inflicted and arms
recovered as well as other outcome
of the operation in Munguno, Marte
and other communities already
secured, will be determined after
the ongoing cordon and search in
the environs.
“The air and land operation is
continuing with aggressive
advance towards other designated
communities and locations meant
to be cleared in the ongoing
offensive against the terrorists,” he
said.
