The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said troops of 111 Special Forces Battalion, 7 Division Garrison, during a special raid operation carried out at Delwa general area yesterday, discovered and destroyed a Boko Haram factory for fabricating rockets at Jamrari, Borno State.
A statement by the Army spokesman, Sani Usman, said this unprecedented feat has dealt a huge blow to the “much touted ability of the terrorists to fabricate rockets and their launchers using rudimentary materials”.
Col. Usman added that the identification and destruction of the terrorist sect’s locally fabricated rockets factory has further crippled the terrorists while greatly motivating the troops to carry out more offensive actions against Boko Haram till they are defeated.
“The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, who is on constant communication with the troops, commended them for this singular act and other similar feats and encouraged them to do more, more so that the terrorists are on the verge of being defeated”, the statement said.
