Troops on Monday neutralised Boko Haram camps in three villages and captured high calibre weapons during operation “ Deep Punch II” in the Lake Chad general area.
The Director of Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman confirmed this in a statement on Tuesday.
He said Metele, Tumbun Gini and Tumbun Ndjamena villages in the area had been cleared of terrorists.
“During the clearance operations, Boko Haram terrorists abandoned the area in disarray leaving behind livestock, large quantity of foodstuff, motorcycles and donkeys.
The troops also discovered terrorists’ logistics base at Tumbu Ndjamena which held stocks of fish, foodstuffs, fuel and motorcycles.
All these items were promptly destroyed.
