Nigeria’s military is set to turn the Sambisa forest, a former bastion of militant Islamist group Boko Haram, into a training centre for its troops.

The new base will also be used as ground for testing acquired equipment before putting them into operation.

The move is to prevent the militants from rebuilding a presence in the area.

Last Friday, Nigeria’s military overran the militants’ last camp in the forest.

Sambisa had become their main base after they lost control of urban strongholds in north-eastern Borno state in 2015.
