Most wanted Boko Haram terrorist killed

The army said it has killed a wanted Boko Haram terrorist leader while other members of his team escaped with gunshot wounds while food and ammunition were also recovered by the soldiers.
The army authority described the feat as an important victory in the fight against terrorism.
According to Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, who is the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, the unnamed terrorist was killed on March 10 after troops of 7 multinational joint task force brigade’s Quick Response Group (QRG) stationed in Baga and 118 Task Force Battalion staged an ambush along Daban Masara axis.
The terrorist was one of the leaders of the insurgency group and was number 95 on the first Nigerian army wanted list of 100 Boko Haram terrorist leaders.
He was mortally wounded during an exchange of fire between soldiers and the terrorists.
However, other members of his team escaped with gunshot wounds while the leader later died of his wounds while receiving treatment at the military base.
Items recovered from the terrorists were 7 Jerri cans of 30 litres containing 210 liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), motorcycles and foodstuffs.
Firearms and ammunition were also recovered.
Meanwhile, contrary to the position held by the government that no region of the country is being controlled by Boko Haram, a top US general, David Rodriguez has claimed that some parts of the country are still under the control of the insurgency.
