Six Boko Haram camps on the outskirts of the Sambisa Forest in Borno state have been destroyed by Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) troops working with the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF).

On Saturday, March 25, 2023, the market in the middle of the camps was also demolished, forcing some of the terrorists to retreat into the Forest.

According to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, the damaged camps are located at Bula Agaida, Bula Yaga, Bula Yambai, Kuluri, Bula Umar, and the new Churchur in the Bama Council of the State. He made this disclosure yesterday (Sunday) in Maiduguri.
