Two ‘high profile’ Boko Haram commanders have been killed during a clearance operation by troops of 25 Task Force Brigade Chibok and 28 Task Force Brigade Damboa.
The killed commanders were identified as Abu Rajal and Tuja Sai’inna Banki.
The troops according to a Twitter post by the army embarked on the clearance operations from Gumsuri to Gamboru in Borno State on 9 November.
