Nigerian Troops Clear Boko Haram Terrorist Camps In Alagarno, Borno State

Nigerian troops fighting terrorists in the north-east region of the nation have successfully cleared all terrorists’ camps in Alagarno, Borno State.

The raid of the Boko Haram terrorists’ camps was completed on Tuesday morning, the military spokesman, Major General Chris Olukolade, said in a tweet on Tuesday.

Counter-terrorism efforts were re-enforced after the Nigerian government secured arms from South Africa and Russia weeks before the nation’s election was postponed by six weeks.
A Multi-National Joint Task Force has been set up, comprising Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon to boost the fight against the Boko Haram terrorist group, which has been trying, for over five years, to set up an Islamic State in the region.

Last month, Adamawa and Yobe States were cleared of terrorists, after the electoral commission postponed the elections by six weeks, citing military advice.
