The areas include Artano, Saduguma, Duve, Bordo, Kala, Bok, Magan, Misherde, Ahisari, Gilgil, Mika, Hiwa, Kutila and Shirawa settlements in Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.
Army spokesman, Sani Usman, said at Kutila village, the troops came under heavy attack from the terrorists.
He noted that “The troops responded and dealt with the Boko Haram terrorists by neutralizing and routing them out of the area. Several others escaped into the thick forest with gun shot wounds.
“The troops recovered 1 Gun truck, 1 Canter vehicle and 1 pick up from the terrorists.
“They also encountered Boko Haram terrorists at Shirawa who withdrew in disarray when they could not withstand the firepower of the troops and abandoned the newly constructed Logistics Base, 2 freshly prepared suicide bombing vests and maize grinding machine.
“The gallant soldiers proceeded further to clear Bok, Misherde, Mika and Kutila also in Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State, where they liberated 455 persons held hostages by the terrorists.
“The rescued persons after thorough screening have been moved to Rann Internally Displaced Persons camp.”
