The Nigerian Army has announced that a fierce battle between troops and Boko Haram terrorists led to the death of top sect commanders.

This was contained in a statement posted on the Army Facebook page, Tuesday night.

It recalled that Boko Haram had launched a failed attack on troops’ locations at Banki Junction and Response Area Firgi, of the 7 Division Strike Group.

The unsuccessful attack led to troops’ consequent onslaught that killed the terror leaders.
