The Nigerian Army says it killed five Boko Haram insurgents in separate operations in Bama Local Government Areas (LGA) of Borno.

In a statement, the spokesman for the Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, said the insurgents were eliminated in Kote and Bula Dadobe communities in the LGA.

Chukwu explained that a joint operation, entitled “Operation RAINBOW 15” which was conducted between Saturday September 15 and Sunday September 16, came on the heels of the discovery of makeshift bases, established by the terrorists in Yabiri Kote and Bula Dadode.

Members of the terrorist group have launched attacks on villages in Cameroon and Nigeria from that location.
