This is the difficult thing about lie, it cannot be hidden for too long. The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said 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, Sani Usman, made the disclosure in a statement issued in Maiduguri on Wednesday. Mr. Usman, a brigadier general, said the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole under the operation DEEP PUNCH II, recorded tremendous success in the ongoing military offensive against the insurgents.
The underlying fact here is that Nigeria Army’s fighting equipment are not as archaic as portrayed by the Government while making active move to withdraw $1bn from excess crude account. Unlike the presentation made that the army rely on AK47 and other weapon, Nigeria Army in reality use more sophisticated rifles than that and so far, the budget has been able to supplement it enough.
