In a statement released this Sunday, Director Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Texas Chukwu revealed that troops of Operation Lafiya Dole repealed the terrorists after a fierce battle that lasted for many hours.
He added that the troops are still in pursuit of the fleeing insurgents who have been forced to the fringes of Lake Chad.
