Soldiers recaptures Mubi, Gombi, Maiha, Hong council areas
The announcement came on a day President Goodluck Jonathan commended the nation’s armed forces for their courage and sacrifices in the war against insurgency in parts of the country even as he assured that the Federal Government was working hard to improve security in the North-East ahead next year’s elections.
According to observation, life was gradually returning to normal in the local government areas as people were returning home.
But, most of the roads and streets in these areas were still deserted as pockets of people gathered in front of their homes apparently scared of the advancing military vehicles thinking they belonged to the insurgents.
