The Nigerian troops have killed 134 Boko Haram and Islamic States of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists and arrested 16 informants in Borno State.

This was disclosed in a statement in Abuja by the Coordinator of Defence Media Operations (DMO), Maj-Gen. John Enenche on Monday.

The Coordinator said the success was recorded in the ongoing subsidiary operation in the North East Theatre of Operation code-named ‘Operation Kantana Jimlan.

According to him, the operation is being conducted in preparation for the final routing of BHT/ISWAP from the Nigerian territory by the troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

Enenche said the operation was coordinated by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, confirming that it has intensified on various fronts especially within the Timbuktu triangle.

The DMO Coordinator added that the operation had left the criminal elements and their leadership in complete disarray and thus setting the conditions for the commencement of the final assault on their enclaves and hideouts.

He further explained that 16 high profile Boko Haram informants fell into the troops’ dragnet within the last two weeks.

He said that the arrest of such high profile informants had significantly dislocated the terrorists’ information and supply chains and equally dislocating their communication.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
