Read official press statement from Defence Headquarters:

A large number of terrorists have drowned in the Lake Chad as they fled the heavy bombardment by Nigerian Air force heralding the advance of Nigerian troops on mission to flush them out of Baga. Not even the strategy of mining over 1500 spots with land mines on the routes leading to the town could save the terrorists from the aggressive move of advancing troops.

All the land mines were skillfully cleared one after the other. Eventually, the resistance of the terrorists collapsed and the land forces finally stormed the town in the early hours of Friday.Many of the terrorists died while an unknown but substantial number of them fled with various degrees of injury, in the series of encounter along the routes of advance of the as troops headed for Baga.

Apart from the 5 anti air craft guns and the rifles captured from the terrorists, over 34 motorcycles and 5 vehicles including trucks being used for operations by the terrorists were destroyed in the course of the fighting as troops headed for Baga. The troops finally began clearing the terrorists from Baga on arrival in the town early Saturday morning.

A comprehensive cordon and search phase of military operation has now commenced to enable troops mop up arms and ammunition and also apprehend any terrorist who might be hiding in the vicinity. The exercise will also determine details of the casualties inflicted or incurred in the course of the operations to clear Baga and environ of terrorists.

Similar exercise is being carried out in over 15 locations namely Gajigana, Ngaze, Ngenzai, Marte Junction, Mile 90, Yoyo, Kekeno, Kukawa, Cross Kauwa,, Kangarwa, Amirari, Kichimatari, Borokari Barati, Kauwa and other localities where troops have flushed out the terrorists in the operations preceding the entry to Baga. The troops are now dominating and conducting aggressive patrols in the locations. The morale of troops remain high.

He just gave Boko haram orders to back out. Why hasn't the army been able to block supplies from getting to Boko haram? How did heavy weaponry like armour tanks get to The terrorist? They obviously passed through the southern states, through customs, police checkpoints,soldiers. Jonathan controls the transport routes to Boko haram. All he needed to have done was stop supply from reaching them. .for six years he allowed them to grow and only when he saw he could lose election because of that, he ordered Boko hara to back out to make him look like a hero to most voters

So Naija Army had all this might but had waited for Christian to face hell in the hands of these beasts b4 action.

It is hard to explain or is this as a result of support by Chad and Cameroon support? Or just a mere campaign push?

All the same we welcome the fact that the Naija army has finally begin to live up to their age-long no-nonsense reputation

The main reason why bh succeeded was bcos mallams were controlling Naija army, and the compromised. Now that foreigners are in charge, everybody can see the outcome.
