Nigerian troops have retaken the town of Baga from Boko Haram.

The Nigerian Army has reclaimed the town of Baga from Boko Haram terrorists on Saturday in northeastern Nigeria.

“Troops have this afternoon captured #BAGA after fierce battle with terrorists. Heavy casualties. Mopping up ongoing. Details later,” Defense Headquarters of Nigeria said on its official Twitter account.

The town was held by the terrorists since January 3. Although Nigeria said 150 people died when Boko Haram captured Baga, the BBC reported a death toll of more than 2,000.

Chad, Cameroon and Niger recently joined Nigeria in the fight against the Islamist militants.
