Nigerian Army Expands Military Operations Against Boko Haram In Northeastern Part Of Country (Photos, Video)

On February 7, Public Relations Deputy Director of the Nigerian Army Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu announced in an official statement that the Nigerian Army had expanded its military operations against the ISIS-affiliated militant group, Boko Haram, and fully secured the outskirts of the camp Zario area in the Northeastern Borno State.

During its advance, the Nigerian Army captured an IED factory, a VBIED and 22 motorcycles of Boko Haram and destroyed several positions of the terrorist group, according to Col. Nwachukwu.

Moreover, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) announced that one of its Chinese-made CH-3 Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs) discovered and destroyed an artillery piece of Boko Harm in the northeastern part of Nigeria on February 7.

The Sambisa forest, near the Zario camp in the Borno state, was fully secured by the Nigerian Army on January 26. On January 29, the Nigerian Army secured Zario camp after a successful military operation against Boko Haram’s positions inside it. Thus, Boko Haram lost most of its positions in the northeastern part of Nigeria. As a result, the terrorist group may increase its attacks against the Nigerian Army positions on the Niger-Nigerian border.
