The Army also added that the terrorist soldiers had taken to burying their weapons in the forest in an attempt to seek solace.
This was disclosed on Thursday, September 3, 2015, by the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Sani Usman during a news conference in Abuja.
“I have no iota of doubt in my mind that our troops will wipe out the insurgents in the shortest possible time and we are committed to this target.”
“You are aware that our troops recaptured Gamboru Ngala last Tuesday and are now consolidating, mopping up and preparing for the next offensive against the terrorists.”
“It is gratifying to note that most of the terrorist group leadership, has been decimated, while foot soldiers are abandoning their masters, burying their weapons in the forest and seeking solace.”
“It is the achievements from harmonised efforts that have confirmed our stand that the insurgency would be ended as soon as possible.”
Usman also said that the Army was already on course to meet the three-month deadline given by President Muhammadu Buhari to end the insurgency.
