The Nigerian Army has again recorded another resounding victory over Boko Haram insurgents during another attempt to capture Maiduguri.
Sahara Reporters made it known that the Troops who were from the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri made members of the insurgent to hands down during a showdown in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, yesterday.
Reports have it that the soldiers stationed in Konduga yesterday repelled an attack by Boko Haram fighters who tried once again to capture the town as a gateway to Maiduguri.
It is worthy to note that the Nigerian troops have in recent times recorded a remarkable upper hand against the Boko Haram insurgents as the force has been having a remarkable victory on the terror group who have launched no fewer than four attacks on Konduga.
Hundreds of insurgent fighters have died in the battles and Nigerian soldiers have also seized vehicles and armored personnel carriers from the terrorist group. The insurgent group had captured most of the weaponry and hardware in previous battles with ill-motivated and ill-equipped Nigerian security forces.
In one of the showdowns, it would be recalled that the soldiers killed Mohammed Bashir, a top Boko Haram commander who took up the mantle of leader from Abubakar Shekau after his death. Mohammed was said to be the brain behind the recent video recordings posing as the Islamist sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.
Also, Nigerian soldiers reportedly fought for several hours before subduing a group of insurgents who attacked Benisheikh, a town in Borno State.
Meanwhile, Boko Haram militants are massing around Alau River very close to Giwa Barracks. The militants have been sighted in groups in Goduram, Old Kaigamari, Ngadaya, Dubuwa, Tumbulla and old Kotowori. Sources said the militants are plotting afresh to overrun Maiduguri during the upcoming Salah holidays.
It would be recalled that just yesterday, residents of Damaturu, Yobe State capital, expressed their joy over the continuous defeat of the terrorists group, Boko Haram by the Nigerian military in the North-Eastern part of the country.
However, despite the reported military take over in the northern part of the country, members of the Boko Haram group on September 25, 2014, unleashed mayhem on Shaffa, a town in Borno State, with about  20 people reported dead.
