Check Out Photos Of Nigerian Troops In High Spirit After Successful Operations Against Boko Haram

The Nigerian military in her bid to restore peace back to the Northeastern region of the country have in recent times killed many Boko Haram fighters — and more crucially, retaken a swath of territory once held by the insurgents.

However, the gains have come against a backdrop of relentless attacks that, if anything, have escalated. Notwithstanding the backdrop, here are some battlefield photos of gallant Nigerian Soldiers celebrating resounding victories against the dreaded Islamist terror group after overruning their strongholds in the Sambisa Forest;

The Nigerian military has been conducting a large-scale offensive especially in the vast Sambisa forest during the past few years.

The Sambisa forest was where Boko Haram was believed to be holding some of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped in April 2014 from a school in the town of Chibok — a mass abduction that brought the Islamic extremists world attention and sparked an international social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls.

Had the Sambisa base been of significant strategic and definitive value to Boko Haram, one would have thought that the liberation of the forest would have culminated with the neutralization of high ranking members like the deadly Abubakar Shekau. Alas, this has not proved to be the case
