Terrorist group Boko Haram takes control of two towns in Nigeria
Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum said in a statement that the state’s towns of Abadam and Guzamala passed under the control of Boko Haram.
Noting that great success has been achieved in the fight against terrorists recently, Zulum said that the security forces launched operations to take these towns back.
Despite the operations carried out in recent years, Boko Haram still poses a serious security problem in Nigeria.
More than 20 thousand people lost their lives in the mass terrorist acts organized by Boko Haram, which has existed in Nigeria since the beginning of the 2000s, since 2009.
The terrorist organization has also carried out attacks in the country’s border neighbors Cameroon, Chad and Niger since 2015. At least 2,000 people lost their lives in the organization’s attacks in the Lake Chad Basin.
Hundreds of thousands of people had to migrate in the country due to terrorist attacks and conflicts.
