Video - Nigerian army targets Boko Haram stronghold in Sambisa forest
The Nigerian Army has set out to destroy all camps and hideouts of members of Boko Haram in Sambisa forest, the sect's stronghold. The country's Minister of Defense, Mansur Dan'ali said the troops are now at the verge of entering the forest to flush out the insurgents terrorizing some states in the northeast. He said tremendous success had been recorded in the fight against Boko Haram since the beginning of the present administration. The Nigerian government said in December 2015 that Boko Haram had been technically defeated and was no longer capable of conventional warfare, instead resorting to guerrilla attacks on soft targets.
