Soldiers in Borno State have reportedly killed a very high ranking member of terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

The terrorist commander is said to have been killed during a raid carried out in the state by men of the Multi National Joint Task Force.

He was reportedly killed during an air raid carried out by troops in the town of Malumfatori.
