The military added that cordon and search as well as mop up of the community is still on going to make the environment safe for displaced locals to return.
The Defense Headquarters added that aside being one of the strongholds of terrorists in the State, Alagarno also provided routes used by the terrorists to neighbouring towns and countries.
“The thick forest in the area had made it a safe haven for the terrorists for a long time as the terrain was not easily accessible and it was endowed with natural hideouts from aerial bombardments. Alagarno is the major haven of terrorists ahead of Sambisa forest,” Defense Headquarters said.
