Military rout Boko Haram terrorists in Damasak
Boko Haram terrorists met their waterloo in a foiled attack on Nigerian troops when they attacked a military base in Damasak, Borno state.
The deadly blow on the terrorists was contained in a statement by army spokesperson, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, “the troops engaged and subdued the terrorists following a superior firepower of troops in Damasak.”
The army spokesperson also denied a media report claiming that Damasak was taken over by terrorists.
He said: “Nigerian Army wishes to state categorically that the claim is not only untrue but capable of misleading members of the general public and the world at large.
“The Nigerian Army earlier released a statement that troops of 145 Battalion in Damasak, Borno State, are engaging Boko Haram terrorists who came to attack their location at about 6 p.m on 12 September 2018.
“Consequently, the Nigerian Army wishes to state that the fight against Boko Haram terrorists in the North Eastern parts of the country is yielding positive result.
“The Nigerian Army, therefore, advised members of the public, particularly residents of the affected areas, to go about their legitimate businesses and disregard the said report.”
