The Nigerian Army has said that its troops destroyed Boko Haram’s tactical ground, Camp Zero, in the ongoing clearance operation to dislodge remnants of Boko Haram insurgents in Sambisa Forest.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Sani Kukasheka, made the disclosure in a statement issued in Maiduguri on Wednesday said the troops recovered a battle tank, guns, ammunitions, religious scriptures, gas cylinders and assorted fertilisers, ostensibly for making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The Army spokesman added that the troops also destroyed seven gun trucks, several vehicles, motorcycles and makeshift shelters used by the insurgents. One of the major item recovered from the insurgents was an Eagle Main Battle Tank (EMBT) as shown in these pictures released by the Nigerian Army.
