Nigerian Troops Record Major Success Against Boko Haram Again, Kill One + Recovers Ammunitions (Pics)

Nigerian soldiers of the 151 and 202 Battalions of 21 Brigade under Operation Lafiya Dole have reportedly carried out a well-coordinated attack against the Boko Haram insurgents in Borno state.

The troops carried out a simultaneous attack against the insurgents by laying ambush on them along Firgi-Pulka Road in Bama local government area of the state.

“The Troops engaged the terrorists with a heavy fire causing the terrorists to abandon their weapons and flee in disarray with gunshot wounds.

“In the first instance upon exploitation, troops recovered from the ambush site one General Multi-Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG) and one motorcycle.
“They also successfully discovered and safely detonated unexploded ordnance.

“However, the troops followed with a hot pursuit, neutralized one terrorist and recovered six bundles of zinc,” a statement by Sani Usman, spokesperson of the Nigerian army, said.

Also, crack troops of the 22 Brigade of the Operation Lafiya Dole reportedly intercepted three Boko Haram terrorists disguised as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and trying to infiltrate a barrier.

Upon engagement, the bombers quickly detonated their vests.

The troops recovered two AK-47 rifles, two magazines with several rounds of ammunition among other items.
