The Nigerian Army revealed on Sunday that it will soon launch an attack on a remote Island in Lake Chad where Boko Haram fighters now use as their new operational base.
According to Premium Times, this was disclosed by the Acting General Officer commanding, GOC 8 Task Force Division, Stevenson Olabanji, when he visited troops of the 118 Task Force Battalion under his division at their frontline location in Gudumbali village of Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno State.
A statement issued by the spokesman of the Task Force Division, Timothy Antigha, quoted the GOC issuing motivational orders to the troops.
Mr. Olabanji, a brigadier general, asked the soldiers to always make sure their weapons are serviceable as the strike order on the secret Boko Haram location could be given at any time.
He also said the awaited operation might be the final one that would bring about the end of Boko Haram insurgency.
Meanwhile, the terror group released a video of 10 women believed to be police officers abducted from a police convoy in Borno state some weeks ago.
