Nigerian Soldiers Sack Boko Haram From Pulka, Arrest Disguised Terrorists

Nigerian troops continue to gain the upper hand in the campaign in the North east as soldiers on Monday recovered Pulka, a town in Borno State, from the control of insurgents after a fierce battle.

Pulka is said to have served as one of the insurgents’ major access routes to the Mandara mountains and was also a supply route linking Nigeria with Cameroon.






     

     

    “Pulka used to serve as a supply conduit for the insurgents. They also used the route to pass to and fro Cameroon and Nigeria,” the director, Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, said in a statement.

    Olukolade, a Brigadier-General, also confirmed that the troops commenced cordon and search operations in the area immediately after the success of the air and land operations..

    In a related development, a male terror suspect disguised as a hijab-clad lady was nabbed by vigilant troops as he embarked on a suicide mission targeting Kwaya Kusar Market in Borno State on Saturday.
