The Nigerian Army has retaken the economic and strategic town of Gamboru Ngala in Borno State, from the Boko Haram terrorists group.
A statement by the spokesman for the military, Colonel Sani Usman, said the troops had started clearing and mopping up patrols in the town.
Earlier yesterday, the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, urged the Armed Forces to remain committed to their operational responsibility and National Security while making efforts to end insurgency in the north-east.
General Olonisakin while holding a brief with the Principal Staff Officers and senior officers of the Defence Headquarters commended the field commanders and the troops in the north-east for maintaining the momentum in their efforts to root out terrorists from the region.
President Muhammadu Buhari had given the military a three-month ultimatum to end the acts of terrorism in the north-east.
