?As part of the promise of the Theatre Command to keep the public informed of our activities, this press conference has been organised to brief on the activities of the troops in the past few days,? Mr. Irabor, a major general, said.



?Accordingly, in furtherance of the ongoing offensive operations to clear Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) in the Northeast, on 17 January troops conducted a clearance operation at Shentimari general area and cleared Boko Haram enclaves and recovered 78 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition.
