Nigerian troops, yesterday, dislodged Boko Haram fighters trying to invade Maiduguri, the Borno State capital. After hours of fierce battle with the terrorists, the army took control of Maiduguri and Konduga, the two cities Boko Haram attacked in the early hours of Sunday.
“More casualties inflicted on terrorists as troops battled fleeing ones and reinforcement at outskirts of Maiduguri, Konduga last night (Sunday night). Substantial amounts of heavy weapons have been captured, as more terrorists died in the fight which lasted till early Monday morning,” Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade wrote on twitter.
“Our forces also recorded some casualty. Meanwhile, ground troops are in charge and Airforce patrol still ongoing.”
The curfew imposed on Maiduguri, has now been lifted, while members of President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign train who were trapped as a result of the curfew, including journalists, medical personnel and body guards reportedly left for Abuja, yesterday.
