Seventy eight Boko Haram members were killed on Thursday in a two hour shoot out with the military in Biu Borno state as they tried to capture their military base.
During the wee hours of the morning, hundreds of terrorist had invaded a military with the intention of carting a way with weapons in order to expand their military base.
Some Chaldians were either captured or killed during the shoot out. Two aircraft guns were also recovered from them.
Military sources disclosed yesterday afternoon that no fewer than 78 bodies have been recovered.
Defence spokesman major General Chris Olukolade noted that the military was more concerned on the success of operations than the figures of terrorist killed in the operations.
He also added that
“What is important now is for us to consolidate on the victory, recapture areas where the terrorists are presently operating and restore peace to the entire north east.”
It was learned that residents has trooped to the scene to see the dead men and their bullet-driven vans.
