troopsThe Nigeria Army says as part of Operation Gama Aiki, troops of Operation Lafiya Dole and Multinational Joint Task Force have captured Mallam Fatori – a border town far north of Borno State.

The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, in a statement on Wednesday, said the town was taken by troops after a fierce battle closely covered by air operations.

The statement, however, said the militants regrouped around the border with Niger Republic, adding that: “This was while the troops were consolidating on this success”.

Col. Usman further said the troops killed several of the Boko Haram militants in the resulting encounter and subsequently had to withdraw to a vantage position.

“The operation is continuing”, the Army spokesman said.
