The combined troops of Sector 1 Operation LAFIYA DOLE and 402 Special Forces Brigade have killed 25 Boko Haram and Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists in a fierce battle in Borno State.
Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima made the disclosure in a statement on Wednesday.
He noted that troops in the course of the clearance operation, encountered heavy fleets of the terrorists, engaged and ultimately obliterated them, and captured the following weapons: two Browny Machine Gun, 20 AK 47 Rifles and five FN Rifles, two 60mm Motar Tube and two General Purpose Machine Guns.
“Other weapons captured during the operation also include three Anti Air Craft Guns, two Automatic Grenade Launchers, two Gun trucks and one CJTF Hilux amongst others,” he further revealed.
He added that the troops not swayed by the success, projected further to ensure that no elements of the terrorists were left within the area.
 “The troops have continued to clear all villages and enclaves hitherto inhabited by the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) and their Islamic State West Africa Province Counterparts (ISWAP) around Chikun Gudu, Kerenoa axis and environs in the ongoing Phase II of Operation “TURA TAKAIBANGO”.
“The clearance onslaught was based on the directives given by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru when he visited the Theatre of Operation LAFIYA DOLE.
“During his operational visit to DIKWA, the COAS issued directives to troops to advance and recapture Marte and thereafter project further to clear other adjoining villages which include Chikun Gudu, Kerenoa and environs,” he explained.
He added that following the directive, the gallant troops moved in, achieved the objective and projected ahead.
The COAS has already commended the gallant troops and charged them to maintain the momentum in order to ensure that the area is completely cleared and dominated.
He also instructed them not relent in their new offensive against terrorism and insurgency.
