With the massive military operations, the troops have also recovered Monguno, Marte, Gamboru Ngala, Dikwa, Baga among other big towns and communities.

Having successfully liberated most of the towns, the troops’ attention has now been focused on consolidation of the security of the areas to pave way for return of citizens to their normal life and for peaceful conducts of forthcoming elections

Interestingly, the troops have maintained the winning ways with renewed confidence, since Defence Headquarters asked for a six-week postponement of elections for the military to be able to make every part of the country especially the north east safe and conducive for conduct of the general elections, to be held this month.

Sources within the military told The Guardian that terrorists in their hundreds have been dislodged, eliminated or fled the area because of the effectiveness of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) put together by the countries of the Lake Chad basin
