Army refutes killing of troops in Borno


The Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Benson Akinroluyo, has refuted the report trending on the social media that the military lost some of its troops to an attack carried out by the Boko Haram sect on its Kimba forward operational base in Borno State.

The casualties’ claim, according to him, was fake.

The command’s spokesman, Col. Ado Isa, in a statement yesterday in Maiduguri, disclosed that the terrorists were being “bombarded and chased out” from their enclaves with depleted number of fighters and supplies.
