The Federal Government has confirmed that 15 Chadians were among over 42 Boko Haram members that were killed following Wednesday’s attack on Biu in Borno state.
The Coordinator of the National Information Centre, Mr. Mike Omeri on Thursday stated the Department of State Security would investigate the five militants captured alive during the operation.
Omeri who briefed journalists in Abuja, also hinted that security forces would ensure that the Chibok girls, seized from their school nine months ago, were freed.
His words, “The Nigerian Army successfully countered an attack by suspected Boko Haram militants near the town of Biu, Borno State. At least 42 insurgents, including 15 Chadians were killed during an intense ground battle, which saw the military repel and then advance on militants.”
