Seven Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists’ gun trucks have been effectively destroyed and several unconfirmed number of terrorists have been decimated by the troops of Operation TURA TAKAIBANGO in conjunction with the Air Task Force Operation LAFIYA DOLE.
This new development happened when Boko Haram insurgents attempted to attack their location at the outskirts of Marte in Marte Local Government Area of Borno State.
This was contained in a statement released by the Brig. Gen. Bernard Onyeuko, the acting director-general of the Defence Media Operations
Onyeuko said the gallant troops, based on reliable information about the attack, had positioned themselves in an ambush site where they tactically withdrew to and awaited the arrival of the terrorists before they opened fire which led to fierce battle that resulted in the successes recorded as indicated above.
The troops are still engaged in pursuit of the fleeing terrorists for further exploitation.
