Nigeria: Nigerian army captures last Boko Haram camp in former stronghold


Nigeria’s army has captured Boko Haram’s last enclave in the vast Sambisa forest that was the Islamist group’s stronghold, the country’s president has announced.

“I was told by the chief of army staff that the camp fell at about 1.35pm on Friday and that the terrorists are on the run and no longer have a place to hide,” Muhammadu Buhari said in a statement.

He said the capture of the camp marked the “final crushing of Boko Haram terrorists in their last enclave in Sambisa forest”, which is in Borno state in north-east Nigeria.

It follows a large-scale offensive in the forest by the Nigerian military in the last few weeks. Reuters was unable to independently verify whether the camp had been captured.
