The Nigerian Army claims that troops from the Joint Task Force, North East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), have killed Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) militants.
Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Army Public Relations, stated this in a statement issued in Buja on Monday.
Mr Nwachukwu claimed forces working with the Cameroonian Defense Force killed four terrorists at the Forward Operating Base (FOB) Wulgo in Borno on Monday.
While “on patrol to dominate their area of responsibility,” the “vigilant troops successfully prevented an attempt by terrorists to infiltrate the camp.”
According to him, the troops “swiftly responded with overwhelming fire and spontaneous” reinforcement from the battalion headquarters, forcing the terrorists to retreat.
“Troops immediately carried out a hot pursuit and exploitation after the encounter, along the terrorists’ route of withdrawal and neutralised three terrorists. The gallant troops also recovered three AK 47 rifles, six magazines and 50 rounds of 7.62mm special,” he said.
Mr Nwachukwu also stated that four other terrorists were killed the same day, around the 151 Battalion location, noting that they were burnt beyond recognition, “as their gun truck mounted with anti-aircraft guns ran over an improvised explosive device (IED).”
He also mentioned that the troops were currently conducting further exploitation to “clear any surviving terrorists.”
