PICTURED: Several Terrorists Killed, Many Captured As Nigerian Military Took Over Gwoza Town, Boko Haram’s HQ

CAPTURED: Gwoza town is the headquarters of the Boko Haram's Caliphate
The Nigerian Military on Friday [Mar. 27], announced that it has captured one of the towns still controlled by Boko Haram in Borno State. The Military said they captured Gwoza and destroyed the headquarters of the “terrorists’ self-styled Caliphate”. “Several terrorists died while many are captured” adding that “they are mopping up of entire area and her suburbs is ongoing”, the Nigerian Army said

The Military made this known via twitter on Friday morning.

Nigerian Defence HQ said in a statement moments ago:
Just this morning, the gallant troops of the Nigerian military in a concerted and well-coordinated land and air operations have liberated Gwoza, the headquarters of their so called caliphate which they renamed ‘darul hikima’. This was preceded by successive sack of terrorists from towns and villages leading to Gwoza, the main objective.   Several of the terrorists have died and many of them captured in the process.   A lot of arms and ammunition have been recovered and the administrative Headquarters completely destroyed. A massive cordon and search has commenced to locate any of the fleeing terrorists or hostages in their custody.


This is coming some days after President Goodluck Jonathan assured Nigerians that Gwoza which is the last town under attack by the sect will soon be captured.
