By Augustine Osayande

Troops of 81 Battalion and 251 Task Force Battalion have killed undisclosed number of terrorists after they had laid ambush against some elements of the Boko Haram at two of their crossing points at Komala and Musafanari general area coming from Sambisa forest. This was confirmed by Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman.

“In continuation of their exploits against the Boko Haram terrorists, troops of 81 Battalion and 251 Task Force Battalion, have intensified offensive actions against the terrorists.
Last night, the troops laid ambush against some elements of the Boko Haram at two of their crossing points at Komala and Musafanari general area coming from Sambisa forest” Usman said.

The Army spokesman said the ambush party decisively dealt with some terrorists on motorcycles in which a number of the insurgents were killed and a few others fled with gunshot wounds.

“The troops recovered one AK-45 rifle with registration number 56-2614519, in addition to a magazine containing 9 rounds of 7.62mm (Special), 6 motorcycles, 2 bags of salt and other assorted food items as well as various Improvised Explosive Making Devices (IEDs)”, Usman said.

He added that the recovered items clearly shows that that the terrorists were out for a nefarious mission which was aborted by the timely ambushes.

Usman implored members of the public to kindly oblige the military with timely information on the Boko Haram terrorists to enable the security to deal with them decisively.

He said the troops in various axis of the theatre are poised for the clearance of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists in the country.
