Sambisa: Military deploys more equipment, continues assault

As assault on Sambisa forest resumed, the Nigerian military has deployed more equipment to enhance the speed of  the operation to flush out terrorists from their last known stronghold. Military sources have reported that the troops remain undeterred and have deployed mine sweepers in the forest to rid the area of deadly mines, just at the Nigerian Air Force has stepped air raids to stop Boko Haram insurgents from amassing.   
This was also confirmed by Director of Defence Information (DDI), Maj-Gen. Chris Olukolade, who said that more military equipment, arms and ammunitions have been deployed and assured that the outcome of the operation will be made known to the members of the public as at when due.
“Additional equipment efforts have been deployed to clear mines and obstacles in order to enhance speed towards the objectives in the forest. Progress will be reported as necessary,” he said.
Also, the military has refuted reports alleging that its ground forces have retreated from the Sambisa forest. This allegation was fuelled by the reported killing of a soldier and three vigilante members by a landmine.
