BORNO: Troops recapture Marte, kill B’Haram/ISWAP terrorists – Army

THE Nigerian Army, yesterday, recovered New Marte and adjoining communities in Borno, killing scores of Boko Haram/Islamic States West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists who had laid siege on the area for some days.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Yerima said in a statement that the feat was achieved at about 3p.m.

Yerima noted that the troops achieved the success in less than the 48 hours, after the Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru, had given them a 48-hour directive to recapture the town.

He said the troops, backed by air cover from the Nigerian Air Force, successfully swept through Marte town, destroying several Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs) and landmines laced across their routes.

According to him, scores of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists were killed.

“The gallant troops are currently in total control of the general area,” he said.

This is the first feat the army will achieve under the leadership of the new Chief of Army Staff, Major.General Attahiru Ibrahim.

The  COAS had on Sunday spurred the soldiers into action by assuring them that the necessary provisions would be made for all they needed to ensure satisfactory performance on the field.

“You must not let this nation down. Go back and do the needful and I will be right behind you,” the army chief was reported to have said.
