Abuja, Feb 24 : Nigerian troops killed several Boko Haram militants while taking back a "lost town" in the country's northeast region, an army spokesman said.
Mohammed Yerima, the army spokesman, told Xinhua that the town of Marte and its surrounding areas in the northern state of Borno were cleared of militants who had laid siege to the region for some days, Xinhua reported.
On Sunday, Ibrahim Attahiru, the country's new army chief, ordered the troops to recover the town within 48 hours from the Boko Haram militants who reportedly had taken over the area and hoisted their flag a few days ago.
