The war against the Boko Haram terrorists is gathering momentum as the insurgents fleeing back to their safe haven after the invasion that lasted between 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm, killed two soldiers in combat, attacked six IDPs, took police van, and abducted two female police officers in Dikwa town, Borno State, on Friday, 29th January 2021.
An eyewitness in Dikwa, according to Punch online, disclosed:
“When they came into the town on foot, they started shooting sporadically. We all took to our heels. From the way they attacked, it was obvious they were on the run because the army has been clearing them in Sambisa Forest and you know Dikwa is in close proximity to the forest.
“I cannot tell the number of casualties because I ran for safety and I have not heard anything about the casualty figures but they didn’t target any particular place for destruction.”
