The Nigerian army have been making significant headway in its effort to wreck terrorist group-Boko Haram with the recent operation leading to the death of nine Boko Haram terrorist.


In a statement issued by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman who is the acting director of army public relations, he said troops of 155 Task Force Battalion of 21 Brigade of the Nigerian army carried out a clearance operation on Thursday, March 31 in Wulwuta village ahead of Jere in Bama local government area of Borno state.

Usman said the operation resulted in the discovery and subsequent destruction of an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) factory. He said the terrorists were cleared while a soldier was wounded. The army spokesperson said the troops recovered 1 laptop, 1 solar panel, a pair of Nigerian military desert and woodland camouflage uniform, a bandolier vest and 6 ready IEDs pressure plates. They also recovered a loaded pistol with registration number D557954, 3 rounds of 7.65mm, 13 rounds of 7.62mm ammunitions and combat boots. The operation resulted in the release of 21 persons who had been held captives by the terrorists. They include 8 men, 4 women and 9 children. They have been moved to the Brigade Headquarters for further care, screening and eventual hand over to the appropriate agencies.

Usman added: “It is significant to state that the ever vigilant and professional troops noticed that the terrorists were determined to cause maximum casualty on them by stuffing 2 empty artillery shells and other cartridges with IED and batteries ready to explode. They were however safely detonated by the Explosive Ordinance Device (EOD) team attached to the unit. “It is heartwarming to state that the troops morale remains high and fighting efficiency is equally unprecedented.”
