The Nigerian Army has hoisted the national flag in the recently liberated town of Gamboru Ngala, Borno State, thereby reasserting the authority of the Nation on the town.
Gamboru Ngala had, until a few days ago, been under the captivity of Boko Haram fighters, who have come under renewed offensive by the Nigerian military.
The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, was in Gamboru Ngala with troops. President Muhammadu Buhari has since given the military a timeline of three months, to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East.
The overjoyed troops were joined in the celebrations by the Chief of Army Staff, General Buratai.
