At least 15 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group were shot dead by the military on Tueday night, after the insurgents attempted to launch a major operation against Gwoza community of Borno State.
Residents of the community had been alarmed when the insurgents pushed desperately to regain the community.
Gwoza was first seized by Boko Haram and dubbed a caliphate in August 2014 but was recaptured by the military in February 2015.
Confirming the death of the terrorists to newsmen on Wednesday, Theatre Commander of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, said that the terrorists were dealt a ‘great blow’ by the troops stationed at the hilly town.
