Brief – The Nigerian Army has been praising itself on Twitter, saying its counterinsurgency operations are yielding fruitful and positive outcomes.

It boasted that recent successes included the surrendering of 204 Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’way Wa’l-Jihād (JAS), better known as Boko Haram, fighters and their families in the Bama Local Government Area of Borno State; that two former abducted Chibok schoolgirls had been found; and that it had killed “scores of insurgents” and recovered weapons.

Its ongoing offensive onslaught by the troops of Operation Desert Sanity had “neutralised” Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters around Gurzum in Borno State, destroying “terrorists’ markets and camps” and recovering weapons.

Bulama Audu Bukarti, a senior analyst in the Extremism Policy Unit of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, posted on his Twitter site that ISIS had released a video in which it paid tribute to 23 ISWAP commanders who were killed by the security forces, saying it was a huge loss.
