Reports from Sokoto State in the northwestern part of Nigeria have indicated that the Nigerian military has launched a series of attacks on the enclave of the terrorist bandits who operate in the region, ChannelsTV reports.
A number of the terrorists were said to have been killed, while many others were injured in the wake of the military attacks.
