Nigerian Troops Reclaim Marte, Kill Scores of Terrorists
Barely 24 hours after Chief of Army Staff, Major-General Ibrahim Attahiru, gave a charge to troops to clear Marte and other strongholds of Boko Haram, Nigerian troops have successfully charged through Marte, killing scores of ISWAP/ Boko Haram Terrorists who laid siege in that area for some days.
A Military Officer told PRNigeria that the troops successfully and safely detonated series of IEDS laced along the routes and finally dominated the general area.
“New Marte effectively in our hands since 3pm. Our will and determination are unshaken. We are ever determined not to let our service chiefs and the nation down,” the source enthused.
Marte and environs have been under the control of the insurgents in recent time after the terrorists pushed back Nigerian soldiers. But the table has turned under the charge of the new COAS.
