The Director of Defence Media Operations, Major General Benard Onyeuko, has disclosed that many members of the Boko Haram and Islamic State Of West African Province (ISWAP) have fled their stronghold after troops stormed their camp in Sambisa Forest in Borno State.
The Onyeuko made this known in a statement on Friday, explaining that soldiers attached to Operation Hadin Kai overran the insurgents in the course of a special operation without resistance about 9am on Thursday.
According to him, the gallant troops of Operation Hadin Kai, in a special operation codenamed Op Desert Sanity, captured the terrorist stronghold of Ukuba/Camp Zairo in Sambisa Forest.
“In what could be described as a blitzkrieg, the troops routed the terrorists and captured their enclave. The terrorists fled the camp leaving behind their heavy weapon arsenal.”
