The war against radical Islamist sect – Boko Haram – in Borno State recorded a major success on Wednesday as more than 40 suspected members of the sect were killed in a Military raid involving air strikes and ground assault by troops of the 7 Division, Nigerian Army in Bita village area, along Damboa-Gwoza road.

It would be recalled that almost a fortnight ago, over 20 suspected terrorists were reportedly killed by the troops of the 7 Division in Bita village, while several others escaped when the military launched an offensive on one of the Boko Haram hideouts in the area, as confirmed to reporters by the Spokesman of the Division, Colonel Mohammed Dole.
Bita, which is considered one of the strongholds of the terrorists, is located 32 kilometres west of Gwoza
