The Nigerian army has routed some insurgents wreaking havoc in the troubled north eastern region of the country.
At least 33 Boko Haram fighters, including top Boko Haram commander Abu Illiya, were killed by Operation Hadin Kai troops and civilian joint task force members.
The feat was allegedly accomplished during an intelligence-led aggressive fighting patrol in some identified Boko Haram enclaves in Kayamari, Habasha, and Yuwe villages in Borno State’s Konduga Local Government Area.
Multiple intelligence sources indicated that the troops‘ superior firepower forced the surviving terrorists to flee in disarray, abandoning their property and weapons, according to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad.
The troops also recovered and destroyed 50 bicycles from the terrorists’ hideouts.
The newly appointed Theatre Commander, Joint Task Force, North East Operation Hadin Kai, Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Ali shortly after taking over the command pledged to sustain efforts towards ending the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.
To achieve this, according to the new commander, all hands must be on deck.
