Sharing is caring!

The Nigerian army on Saturday announced that 50 members of the dreaded Boko Haram have been tracked down and killed, days after allegedly killed about 20 villagers in Borno State

According to a statement in NigerianEcho’s possession, the JTF said “Troops pursued the terrorists to their camps and with air support about 50 terrorists were killed in a shoot-out,” Sagir Musa told reporters in Borno state capital Maiduguri.

“The villages have been rescued from the fangs of the insurgents. Troops are pursuing the remnants of the fleeing terrorists by blocking all possible exit routes,” army spokesman Musa added.
Although the number of civillian casualties is still unknown.

However, Borno state residents still live fear, according to people NigerianEcho spoke with via telephone believed that the Nigerian army do exaggerates its actions especially figures of Boko Haram casualties. They wonder how the insurgents are able to carry out deadly attacks unchecked if the JTF actually have a hold on the situation
