Again, Nigerian army wipe out scores of Boko Haram insurgents in Konduga

Early this morning, Nigerian troops successfully crushed an apparent revenge mission by the Boko Haram terrorists who attempted another attack on Konduga, a Borno State town where over 100 of them were killed last week.

After a fierce battle lasting more than 12 hours in the outskirts of the town, scores of the terrorists were again sent to hell.

According to the statement issued by Brig.-Gen. Olajide Laleye, the Director of Army Public Relations, troops recovered three Hilux vehicles mounted with machine and anti-aircraft guns, one Mowag Armoured Personnel Carrier and other assorted arms and ammunition.

"During the fight, several terrorists were killed and those fleeing Konduga with gunshot wounds are being pursued,'' he said.

The army spokesman said that the troops morale and combat efficiency had remained high and added that further details about the engagement and supporting photographs were being awaited.

According to him, the renewed morale, fighting spirit and combat efficiency of troops have been boosted by new strategies devised by the armed forces and support of the public.

"Therefore, the Nigerian Army implores the public to continue to support the military and other security agencies engaged in the ongoing operation to rid Nigeria of blood-letting insurgents and ruthless religious extremists,'' it said.
