According to the NA, troops are scouring the area for fleeing dissidents as part of a follow-up operation.

The Nigerian Army also revealed that the irredentist group has resorted to cheap propaganda to whip up public sentiments after suffering casualties and effectively being denied freedom of action by the troops.

They have circulated a doctored video on social media alleging troops complicity in their mindless atrocities. This propaganda should be dismissed completely, the Army said.
