Moreover, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) announced that one of its Chinese-made CH-3 Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs) discovered and destroyed an artillery piece of Boko Harm in the northeastern part of Nigeria on February 7.

The Sambisa forest, near the Zario camp in the Borno state, was fully secured by the Nigerian Army on January 26. On January 29, the Nigerian Army secured Zario camp after a successful military operation against Boko Haram’s positions inside it. Thus, Boko Haram lost most of its positions in the northeastern part of Nigeria. As a result, the terrorist group may increase its attacks against the Nigerian Army positions on the Niger-Nigerian border.

    This is a welcome development. Finally reading something about Nigeria. Boko haram is a branch of ISIS being neutralized by the Nigerian Army. They have lost the war technically, just a few pockets left but the main political goal of the forces is lost. (The same as in Syria. invade, divide, conquer and rule strategy)

    But now it’s being transformed into something different. Fulani Herdsmen has taken over from Boko haram. What’s interesting is, fulani is an old British ally. They used Fulani back in the century to further there advances and in the end form Nigeria.

    So boko haram is a carbon copy of the dirty work Fulani played in the last century but instead of having Britain this time, you have the anglozionist empire and it’s Arab puppets in the middle east. Wahhbi terrorist organization backed by the angloizonist empire.
