ICC Note: Boko Haram radicals have carried out several attacks against Christian communities, cities and even army bases. The Nigerian army has announced the defeat of the terrorist group several times in the past. However, the insurgents continue to challenge the military in order to recover what they consider to be their territory.

04/28/2017, Nigeria (All Africa) – At least 15 gunmen believed to be Boko Haram fighters were shot dead during a fierce battle with soldiers inside Sambisa forest on Thursday morning, officials said.

The gunmen, according to a release sent in from the 7 Division Nigeria Army on Thursday evening, attempted to attack troops’ base inside Sambisa forest.

The attack came months after the Nigerian military received global accolades when it announced the final defeat of Boko Haram in the once dreaded Sambisa forest in December last year.

To further demonstrate total victory over Boko Haram, the military organised its 2017 Nigeria Army Small Arms (NASA) competition in Sambisa forest where it now has a shooting range.
