Troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE in the North-East have captured Kareto town from Boko Haram terrorists.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman.

Kukasheka said the town was liberated from the insurgents on July 25.

He said the exercise was in continuation with clearance operation of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists hibernating in remote border towns and villages.

``The gallant troops are stabilising the immediate environment, while others are maintaining blocking positions at various areas,” he said.

The Army Spokesman also said that troops of Operation GAMA AIKI under the auspices of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) had successfully cleared Dutchi and Damasak towns.

`` In due course, both troops of Operation GAMA AIKI (MNJTF) and Operation LAFIYA DOLE would link up with each other to continue the clearance operations,’’ he said.
