Army inflicts heavy casualty on Boko Haram

The Nigerian Army has inflicted heavy injury on Boko Haram insurgents who attacked Garshigar community of Mobar Local Government Area in Borno on Wednesday.
Spokesman for the Army Brigadier General Texas Chukwu in a statement on Thursday in Maiduguri said that the insurgents, who were in nine gun trucks, were repelled by troops of 145 Battalion deployed for Operation Lafiya Dole following superior power of the vigilant troops.
He added that “preliminary battle damage assessment reveals that the overwhelming superior power of the troops devastated the insurgents, inflicting human and equipment casualty on the insurgents which forced them to withdraw in disarray.”
The director said that the gallant troops regrouped after the fierce encounter and dominated the general area of Garshigar and its environs with fighting patrols.
“The good people of Mobar Local Government are urged to remain calm and be assured of troops’ commitment to provide adequate security in the general area,” he added.
