Boko Haram kills nine in NE Nigeria

Boko Haram kills nine in NE Nigeria

ABUJA-THE Nigerian Air Force has said one of its Remotely Piloted Aircraft, RPA, successfully destroyed a Boko Haram vehicle workshop, killing numerous insurgents in the process at the Sambisa general area on Monday.

Those released Monday included 118 adult males, 56 women, 19 teens and 51 children, according to operation commander Maj.

Air Vice Marshal, Olatokuno Adesanya, Director of Public Relations and Information, in a statement, said a NAF Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) platform had previously discovered that Boko Haram vehicles were parked in the location. Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, has been a refuge for thousands of people displaced by the insurgency in Nigeria's northeast. "We are handing over the detainees to Borno Government for administration", he said.

It coincides with a new video released by Boko Haram in which its leader, Abubakar Shekau, appeared with some of who have been held captive since 2014.

In 2017, more than 800 Haram fighters participated in the de-radicalisation programme.

The former chairman noted that a security guard at a clinic was also killed after the Boko Haram fighters had looted the facility.

The clip also showed images of military vehicles, armored tanks and a helicopter that Shekau claimed his men had destroyed during a shootout last week.

Muna Garage has recorded series of suicide bomb attacks coordinated by the Boko Haram insurgents in the past one year.

Boko Haram, Nigeria's homegrown extreme Islamic militia, wants to set aside the country's constitution and replace it with Shariah law.
