The Nigerian troops of 5 Brigade Nigerian Army have destroyed all Boko Haram camps and enclaves at the border towns of Kerenowa and Chikun Gudu as well as their contiguous villages in Borno State.
A statement by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Acting Director, Army Public Relations says that during the operation which is ongoing, troops discovered and destroyed over 20 well fortified terrorist camps in the general area of Kerenowa.
The camps includes some at the gateway to Kerenoa, Gumada and Dogon Gida.
In addition, the troops also discovered that to evade aerial reconnaissance and bombardment, the terrorists have dug twin tunnels to conceal their facilities and routes in and out of the camp.
Among facilities discovered were training areas equipped with instructional and training materials that include wooden guns, amongst others.
The troops have also cleared Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) along the road linking Marte, New Marte and Kerenowa.
The statement adds that Boko Haram terrorists now lack the will to fight as they are in obvious disarray, abandoning their camps fleeing and leaving behind vehicles, solar panels used to power devices, food and other logistics, beddings, various IED making devices, cables and cords.
The military says mor*le of the troops remains very high and they exude confidence and zeal to destroy all known Boko Haram camps along their axis of advance.
Nigerians have also been urged to kindly provide useful and credible information to the military about any known terrorist or sympathisers.
