  • Baga town is not in the hands of the Boko Haram —Army


    Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen Tukur Buratai

    The Nigerian Army on Friday said Boko Haram terrorists had not taken over Baga town in Borno  State, contrary to reports in some sections of the media.

    “Baga town is not in the hands of the Boko Haram. They contested it (taking the over the border town) but they lost the contest,’’ Maj.-Gen. Lamidi Adeosun, the Chief of Training and Operations disclosed on the sidelines of a news conference in Maiduguri.

    Adeosun, however, confirmed that as of Thursday, troops engaged the terrorists in a fierce battle in the efforts to repel them.



    “They terrorised the town and attacked the Headquarters of the 7 Brigade of the Multinational Joint Task Force at about 7pm on Wednesday,’’ he said.

    Giving an update on Thursday, the army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman confirmed that a naval officer was killed as troops repelled  the attack.

    Usman added the Nigerian Air Force component of the Operation Lafia Dole was mobilised to engage the fleeing terrorists.
