SAN FRANCISCO, April 24, (THEWILL) – The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said its troops destroyed a Boko Haram insurgent’s Improvised Explosive Device (IED) factory at Buk village in Damboa Local Government of Borno in its Ongoing Clearance Operation.

“Troops of 27 Task Force Brigade in conjunction with the Nigerian Air Force and Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) in the ongoing clearance operation destroyed another Boko Haram enclave.
