Security operatives have successfully flushed out Boko Haram insurgents from Bama, the second largest town in Borno state, according to an unnamed government official.

The insurgents captured the town last week Monday, forcing the military to declare a total war.

Several airstrikes were launched in the town, which has a population of over 200,000 people.

However, a senior government official told Reuters on Monday that the military has been able to send the militants towards Maiduguri, the state capital and neighbouring Adamawa state.

“Bama has been recaptured by the soldiers and I can confirm to you Maiduguri is safe,” said the official

Babagana Modu, a trader in the town, confirmed the news.

He said soldiers were now in control of the town.

However, TheCable could not independently confirm these claims.

The sect has been launching attacks on different communities, particularly in the three north-eastern state presently under the state of emergency.

The sect has reportedly seized two Adamawa towns – Gulak and Michika.

    I’m happy. But then, the military should be more proactive. with proper planning, activities of the insurgents should be restricted to the deserts, mountains, hills and valleys. They should never be allowed to advance into the cities and towns. There should be a clearly demarcated territory in this war against the insurgents. The most effective way to engage the insurgents is through air strikes and aerial bombardments by the air-force. The ground troop can then move in to mop up. This action should happen outside the towns and cities when the militants are advancing. aerial surveillance should also play a key role. I’m sure the military authority know all these. They should be proactive and not reactive. I however congratulate their success in dislodging the insurgents from Bama though. we should be counting our losses after taking stock of civilian casualties
