Nigerian troops invades Sambisa forest, hunt Boko Haram fighters

In a bid to guarantee victory over Boko Haram before the elections, a detachment of the Nigerian military has stormed the Sambisa Forest in Borno State to dislodge members of the violent sect, Boko Haram, who are believed to have used the forest as their stronghold, from where they unleash their terrorist activities.

Sambisa Forest was once believed to be the most feared hideout of the militants, where over 200 schoolgirls, who were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, on April 14, 2014, were held captive.


Military sources told our correspondent on Wednesday that ?troops have commenced a major operation in Sambisa to clean the forest of terrorists.?

The source did not, however, specify how many of the militants had been captured, but said the ?insurgents will be flushed out soon.?
