The Nigerian army recorded an important victory in the fight against terrorism as they killed a wanted Boko Haram leader on March 10.
According to Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, who is the acting director of army public relations, the unnamed terrorist was killed on March 10 after troops of 7 multinational joint task force brigade Quick Response Group (QRG) stationed in Baga and 118 task force battalion staged an ambush along Daban Masara axis.
The route was a well-known path used by terrorists to convey logistics. The terrorist was one of the leaders of the insurgency group and was number 95 on the first Nigerian army wanted list of 100 Boko Haram terrorist leaders. He was mortally wounded during an exchange of fire between soldiers and the terrorists.
Other members of his team escaped with gunshot wounds while the leader later died of his wounds while receiving treatment at the military base. Recovered from the terrorists were 7 Jerri cans of 30 litres containing 210 liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), motorcycles and foodstuffs. Firearms and ammunition were also recovered. Meanwhile, contrary to the position held by the government that no region of the country is being controlled by Boko Haram, a top US general, David Rodriguez has claimed that some parts of the country are still under the control of the insurgency.
