A solution to whatever that bites is to chop off its head, says an African proverb.

For the Nigerian Army, part of completely decimating cut throat terrorists, Boko Haram, is to cut off its food supplies.

On Saturday the Nigerian Army said its troops destroyed a Boko Haram grain market at Boboshe village in Borno State.

A spokesman for the Army, Sani Usman, who disclosed this in a statement in Maiduguri, said the destruction of the market was part of efforts by the armed forces to degrade the remnants of the insurgents.

Usman said that the troops discovered a make shift night market at Boboshe village set up by the insurgents with newly harvested farm produce on display for sale.
