Nigeria's army has captured a key Boko Haram camp, the islamist militant group's last enclave in the vast Sambisa Forest that was its stronghold.


Boko Haram has killed 15 000 people and displaced more than two million during a seven-year insurgency to create an Islamic state.


Army spokesperson Sani Usman said the military was happy and proud of the accomplished task.


Nigeria's military has been conducting an offensive in the forest during the last few weeks.


Officials said in recent days that insurgents were fleeing into surrounding areas, warning residents to be vigilant.
