Troops of Sector 2 Joint Task Force North
East, Operation HADIN KAI have eliminated
two Boko Haram insurgents during a counter attack by the army.
This was in response to insurgents’ infiltration attempt into Babangida community in Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State, on Sunday 26 September 2021.
Owing to the logistics blockade imposed on the insurgents, the criminals now desperately indulge in pillaging activities in order to replenish their dwindling logistics.
The insurgents made futile effort to infiltrate and pillage the community, but were met with a fierce counter attack by the vigilant troops, forcing them to withdraw in disarray, leaving traces of blood littering their route as they fled.
Aside inflicting casualty on the insurgents,
the troops also captured one
BHT/ISWAP Heckler and Koch 21 Guns,
Three AK 47 rifle magazines, 213 links of
7.62mm (NATO) and two grenades.
In a statement by the director of Army public relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, on Monday Yobe residents were advised to remain assured of troops determination to rout the Boko Haram terrorists from their hideouts.
