The troops of 112 Battalion and 24 Task Force Brigade, Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), have neutralised over two dozen Boko Haram terrorists in the Mafa-Dikwa axis of Borno state.
The insurgents were killed during a coordinated fighting patrol with members of the Civilian JTF on December 3, 2022.
A counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, yesterday (Sunday), in Maiduguri, disclosed that; “The terrorists hibernating in Sambisa Forest were all killed in Bulakulari, Gwari-gwazo, Loskori, Limanti and Gaza villages of the Forest.”
He added that the villages were used to attack troops and other law-abiding citizens along the 40-kilometer Maiduguri-Ngwom-Maiduguri road.
