The new Boko Haram base in Bauchi State, has been dismantled by the Nigerian Army, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isa Hamma Misau, has disclosed.
Misau, who is the All Progressives Congress Senator representing Bauchi Central, had recently raised an alarm that Boko Haram militants were migrating from the epicentre of the insurgency in Borno and Yobe States to settle in Bauchi.
