Military destroys terrorists’ training camp, storage facility in Borno

Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole has destroyed a Boko Haram terrorists’ training camp with a suspected ammunition depot at Nuwar in Bama Local Government Area of Borno, Defence Headquarters says.

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj.-Gen. John Enenche, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

Enenche said the air raids were executed Thursday after intelligence reports indicated that the cluster of huts and other structures in the settlement were being used to conduct combat training for the terrorists on a regular basis.
