25 September 2015, 08:20Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Troops involved in operations to rid the North East of Boko Haram terrorists are in "high spirits" on the  back of recent successes against the insurgents.

This is in contrast to the corresponding period yesteryear as the armed forces were reportedly disgruntled and demotivated in the war against the insurgents.

"The troops who are on very high spirits have reiterated their determination to continue with the fight against Boko Haram terrorists till they clear them from all known camps and enclaves," Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, said.

The sentiments came as advancing troops along Banki axis were making tremendous progress in which they cleared two Boko Haram terrorists camps at Jangurori and Bulatori villages. 

In addition, the troops have also arrested 43 suspected Boko Haram terrorists including one of the alleged kingpins in the area, Bulama Modu, who is an ‘Amir’ of Bulakuri.

The troops also rescued 241 women and children during the operation.

An assortment of weapons was recovered.
