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.
