Troops repels Boko Haram attack in Borno

Troops Avert IED Attack as Gen Rogers Receives Savannah Centre

Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in a blocking operation to canalize and deny Boko Haram insurgents freedom of action and escape from ongoing onslaught in the Sambisa region have killed one Boko Haram insurgent yesterday Thursday 19 April 2018 at the Ngala bridge in Gamboru Ngala area of Borno State.

According to a statement by David Ahmadu, the Chief of Training and Operations, the new operation‎ will last four months.

He said: "It will also ensure the destruction of Boko Haram terrorist camps and strong points in the Lake Chad Basin".

"The complex and adaptive nature of the Boko Haram insurgency has resulted in the decedent group still sometimes being engaged in abductions, attack on soft targets, improvised explosive device attacks, and suicide bombings".

Meanwhile, the Theatre Commander Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Rogers Nicholas has pledged support for Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development in its pursuit of the goal to bring security closer to the people of North Eastern Nigeria as part of the rebuilding process for the region.

Cameroon is denying a report by the United Nations refugee agency that it has forcibly repatriated close to 400 Nigerian refugees and asylum-seekers since January, but it says people running to areas prone to regular attacks by Boko Haram had to be moved to safer localities. The operation will also facilitate the rescue of hostages.

India is set to introduce the death penalty for anyone found guilty of raping girls under the age of 12. Speakers called on the government to punish the prosecutors and "not protect them for political gains".

Ahmad said Last Hold, which would commence on May 1 and to last for four months, was meant to facilitate the clearance of the Lake Chad waterways of sea weeds and other obstacles obstructing the movement of boats and people across the water channels.

The UNHCR however recognised the security threat posed by Boko Harm but called for a compatibility between national security and refugee protection.

Despite warnings, Nigerian refugees and asylum-seekers who fled Boko Haram violence continue to be returned from Cameroon, the United Nations refugee agency has said, underscoring the need to accord global protection to those in need.

He revealed that the operation also meant to facilitate the clearance of the Lake Chad waterways of seaweeds and other obstacles obstructing the movement of boats and people across the water channels.
