The Nigerian Army said on Sunday that troops had recaptured Gudumbali town in northern Borno state from Boko Haram terrorists.

Boko Haram had on Saturday dislodged the troops and recaptured Gudumbali town, the headquarters of Guzamala Local Government Area in the northern part of Borno State, Northeast Nigeria, after a lengthy gun battle that started on Friday night.

Nigerian soldiers and civilians fled the town as the terrorists took full control, two months after Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, in July, unveiled a cenotaph in remembrance of the 144 officers and soldiers who fell to Boko Haram in a single swoop in November 2015.

The fall of Gudumbali triggered fears that Boko Haram was back in full force contrary to claims by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari that the terrorists had been defeated.
