Abuja - Residents of Gwoza in Borno have commended the military and the Federal Government for retaking the town from the Boko Haram insurgents.
The Nigerian military on March 27 captured the town from Boko Haram insurgents, which the group had declared its caliphate.
Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from the area, who returned home,
said that the military should be commended for ousting the insurgents.
Fatima Gwonbo said she was driven away by the Boko Haram insurgents
after they had packed their goats, money and killed her child.
Gwonbo said that since the Nigerian soldiers took control of the area, the residents were happy and safe.
"We are happy that soldiers have come; and we returned immediately we heard that they had taken over the place.
"Since the soldiers came here, there has not been any problem and we are moving about peacefully.
