With less than 24 hours to the presidential election where security and corruption are the two big issues that will determine voters’ choice between the two leading candidates, incumbent Goodluck Jonathan and main challenger, Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s Defence Ministry a few moments ago announced the retaking of Gwoza town, a key Boko Haram stronghold ‎in Borno State, northeastern Nigeria.

In a tweet Friday from its Twitter handle, “#DefenceInfoNG, the military said: “Troops this morning captured Gwoza destroying the Headquarters of the Terrorists self styled Caliphate.”

The military said it will address a press conference on the development later in the day.
