The discovery was made by troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B attached to 22 Brigade who had intensified efforts to clear the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in the region

It was a combination of foot and mobile fighting patrols on daily basis to deny the Boko Haram terrorists freedom of action in their area of operations.

While in Bogoro, Duguno 1, Duguno 2 and 3 on Thursday, the troops on reaching Mbaraka encountered some suspected Boko Haram terrorists who engaged the patrol team in a gun battle.

The troops successfully cleared the terrorists and proceeded to Jadda village which was suspected to be a stronghold of the Boko Haram terrorists.

A statement by a spokesman for the army, Colonel Sani Usman, said a large number of the houses in the village were discovered to have the terrorists group’s flags hoisted in their domains.

The troops engaged the Boko Haram terrorists and killed four of them before discovering the pit with decomposed bodies.

“It was also discovered that the terrorists held lots of people as hostage in Jadda.

“The fighting patrol team also succeeded in freeing those held hostage and recovered an AK-47 rifle with registration number OF-4814, 30 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition, 12 rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition, 14 Dane Guns, one motorcycle, two Solar panels and food storage facility.

Troops Clear Boko Haram Terrorists Out Of Biggoro And Warpaya

Troops-Boko-HaramTroops have killed two Boko Haram members and rescued two children as they clear terrorists in some villages of Bama Local Government Area.

A statement by the Nigerian Army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, said that troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B and 22 Task Force Brigade made the feat.

This was achieved while they conducted a simultaneous dawn raid on suspected Boko Haram militants’ hideouts in Biggoro, Warpaya and Aura North of Kumshe in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State, northeast Nigeria.

The essence of the operation, according to the statement, was to stop the reported criminal activities of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hiding in the three villages.

“This became necessary as previous efforts were futile (and) the suspected terrorists kept coming in search for food, water and shelter.

“The surprised dawn attack yielded positive result as the troops discovered well concealed observation posts on trees in the villages constructed by the terrorists, to give them early warning of troops movement or approach.

“In addition, the troops found out that the observation posts on tree tops, were constructed in such manner with chairs and ropes to pull up foods and other needs by the sentry without necessarily coming down the trees.

“To also save for the rainy day, the terrorists had underground food storage facilities where they stocked large quantity of foodstuffs,” the statement read.

The Nigerian Army also revealed that three AK-47 rifles, magazines, ammunition and two motorcycles were recovered from them.
