Abuja - Residents of Gombi town in Adamawa State have commended President Goodluck Jonathan for boosting the morale of the Nigeria military fighting terrorists in the area.
The commendation follows the army repelling a takeover by terrorists, which the unformed forces reported on Tuesday.
One of the residents, Mallam Musa Danuba, said the troops did not only repel the insurgents but killed almost all of them.
“I am sure that the soldiers killed almost all of them that came for the attack, the troops have proven to be on top of the insecurity bedeviling our area,” he said.

Danuba added that none of the residents of the affected area were hurt because the troops battled the insurgents at the entrance of the town.
“The end of Boko Haram has come because they are on the run and confused and thank God for President Goodluck Jonathan for arming the soldiers with new equipment and for boosting the morale of the military," said Danuba.
He said the recent visit of the President and collaborative efforts with neighbouring countries had a great impact on the fight against the insurgents.
Jonathan, during his recent visit to Mubi in Adamawa State and Baga in Borno State applauded troops for the recapture of territories formerly held by insurgents in the North-Eastern states.
