Boko Haram insurgents have killed Lieutenant Colonel Muhammad Abu Ali, who recaptured the Baga town of Borno state from the Islamist sect in 2015.

This was revealed on Saturday, November 5 by Sani Usman, army spokesman, who said Ali was killed in an encounter with the insurgents late on Friday, November 4.
Ali led one of the army’s fiercest-ever battles with Boko Haram in February 2015 that led to recapturing of Baga.

The statement by Usman on Saturday read: “Yesterday at about 10.00pm suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked a 119 Battalion Nigerian Army location at Mallam Fatori, northern Borno State. The troops fought gallantly and repelled the attack, killing 14 Boko Haram terrorists.

“So far, the troops have recovered 1 General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG), 7 AK-47 rifles and a large quantity of ammunition. Mopping up and exploitation are ongoing.”
Meanwhile, barely three weeks after 21 Chibok girls were released by Boko Haram, another Chibok girl has been rescued. She was rescued by Nigerian troops in Pulka, Gwoza area.

This was also disclosed by the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman.
