The Joint Task Force involved in the ongoing fight against Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria have recorded a major breakthrough in the campaign against terrorism in the North-Eastern part of the country.
Investigations on Tuesday revealed that the Special Forces, comprising ground troops and the Air Force fighters, had demobilized one of the strongest fortresses of the Boko Haram sect.
It was learnt that the soldiers, who carried out the operation, were shocked by the volume of arms and ammunition and hundreds of operational vehicles that they captured at the camps.
A source put the number of vehicles captured from the insurgents at 700 while several members of the sect were arrested.
It was learnt that the seized vehicles included those that the insurgents used for attacks and other vehicles they snatched from people.
Military sources said that the camp was well planned with boreholes, dispensary and other facilities to aid the operations of the insurgents.
Security operatives need to investigate their sponsors.
These terrorists are regrouping due to ongoing support they are receiving from their sponsors.
