The army says foodstuffs were found in metal barrels but no weapons cache.

The Nigerian army reports that it has "cleared"
Boko Haram fighters from an area of the Sambisa forest in the volatile
north-east of the country, which is home to militant insurgent group
Boko haram.

The army says in a statement that soldiers destroyed four camps belonging to the insurgents.

As is usually the case, the soldiers killed one Boko Haram fighter was killed and 31 captives were freed.

The army added that it found farm produce stored in metal drums, but no weapons cache was discovered.

The army was tasked by President Buhari upon his assumption of office to end the 6-year old insurgency by the end of the year.

Whiles the army insists that the group has been limited to the Sambisa
forest and the December deadline was feasible, security watchers have
stated that it would be impossible.

The Full Statement is as follows:

Troops operating in Bama axis on a fighting patrol today cleared Boko
Haram terrorists out of Aulari general area located within the Sambisa

The troops cleared all the 4 camps located within the area that includes
Faldan, Kidiziromari, Kuroshini, Kurumari and Ngulda. One Boko Haram
terrorist was killed while trying to escape and about 31 persons were
rescued from the terrorists.

The troops discovered stockpile of farm produce in metal drums, sacks
and underground storage facilities. Other items recovered included
several bicycles and motorcycles. Some of the farmlands yet to be
harvested were also set ablaze by the terrorists.

A wooden rifle used for training and practice by the terrorists was also
retrieved. In a related development, troops of 7 Division Garrison
conducted 8 fighting patrols along Leje Axis.

The troops cleared the area and about 15 other villages around Leje.
They include Khadadamamari, Ladin Buta, Hilmari, Kashauri, Keshan Ngala,
Aiwa, Masu Kura, Mabirni, Grza 1 and 2, Mashuari, Dubenge, Tauba and

Troops also pursued and destroyed 2 Boko Haram terrorists on motor cycles.

Troops have also blocked all known routes to prevent Boko Haram
Terrorists from transporting livestock across borders. All these are
with a view to stopping the Boko Haram from fueling their terror
machines through cattle rustling and illegal trading.

As we continue our push to clear all remaining elements of Boko Haram
terrorists we call on law abiding citizens of the country to continue
providing security agencies with credible information about all known
and suspected terrorists.
