15 Boko Haram terrorists killed during raid on Gwoza, Borno


At least 15 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group were shot dead by troops on Tuesday after the insurgents attempted a major operation against Gwoza community in Borno State.
Residents of the community had been alarmed when the insurgents pushed to regain the community.
Gwoza was first seized by Boko Haram and dubbed a caliphate in August 2014 but was recaptured by the military in February 2015.
Confirming the death of the terrorists to newsmen on Wednesday, Theatre Commander of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, said that the terrorists were dealt a ‘great blow’ by the troops stationed in the town.
“There was actually gun battle between troops and Boko Haram on Tuesday night,” a military source told Daily Sun.
“They came through Yamteke and were pushing to enter the town but they were stopped by troops,” another source said.
