‎Olukolade said apart from the Boko haram members  captured in the course of fighting, “many arrests of terrorists hiding in the town are being made and troops are still busy interrogating the suspects.”

“Meanwhile, in furtherance of the mission to clear terrorists from all their enclaves by the military, the Nigerian Air Force has stepped up its air bombardment of identified targets in Gwoza, Bama and Sambisa forest, preparatory to other phases of the mission.

“The air strikes have been highly successful as they achieved the aims, hitting vital targets with required precision.  Terrorists are now in disarray as they scamper to escape from the impact of air bombardment of their locations in the forest.

“Having successfully liberated Baga where the terrorists have been marauding, the troops’ attention has now been focused on consolidation of the securit‎y” Olukolade said.
