Nigerian military appears to have finally recreated themselves and are daily dealing heavy blows on Boko haram terrorists operating in the North East parts of Nigeria.
Competent military sources disclosed that that early this morning, the troops successfully crushed an apparent revenge mission by the terrorists who attempted another march on the Borno State town where over 100 of them were killed last week.
Konduga is about 50 kilometres to Maiduguri.
After a fierce battle lasting more than 12 hours in the outskirts of the town, scores of the terrorists were again sent to hell this morning.
“Right now, our troops are combing the vicinity of the battle scene in a cordon and search operation to determine the exact casualty figures suffered by the terrorists in the encounter,” a defence source declared.
During the encounter, three Hilux vehicles, one armoured personnel carrier and a cache of arms and ammunition were confirmed captured by the troops.
