Nigerian troops operating in the restive northeast region have cleared more explosive devices planted by fleeing Boko Haram terrorists on some routes in Borno and Yobe states, an army spokesperson said Saturday.

In a statement reaching Xinhua in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub, coordinating army spokesperson Aminu Iliyasu said troops of 27 Task Force Brigade Garrison and Explosive Ordnance Devices (EOD) team safely detonated three large explosives on the Buni Gari-Kamuya road linking Borno and Yobe states.

He said the troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE also raided a Boko Haram camp in Marte area of Borno.

The northeast region has been destabilized for over a decade by the terror group Boko Haram, which most notoriously kidnapped hundreds of schoolgirls in 2014.

Boko Haram is known for its agenda to maintain a virtual caliphate in the most populous African country. Enditem
