Fleeing Boko Haram terrorists at early hours of Wednesday made a futile attempt on 120 Task Force Battalion troops located at Goniri, Yobe State.

During the encounter, troops successfully repelled the attack and inflicted heavy casualty on the invading terrorists.



On the last count, over 100 terrorists’ bodies were seen.


However, 7 soldiers paid the supreme price while 1 officer and 8 soldiers were wounded in action.

Troops recovered a sizeable arms, ammunitions and other equipment from the terrorists.

These include 1 General Purpose Machine Gun, 2 Rocket Propelled Grenades, 9 AK-47 rifles and Belted rounds of 7.62 (NATO) ammunitions.

Others were various wires used for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), 7 Primed IEDs, different types of spanners and a torch Light.

The troops have consolidated on the encounter and are said to be more determined to defend their location and continued to serve as blocking force to any fleeing terrorists from the Nigerian Air Force aerial bombardments and other troops artillery fire.

In a related development, troops of 21 Brigade on fighting patrol from Bama to Ngurosoye, have destroyed Boko Haram terrorists’ camps along that axis.

While on patrol, the brave soldiers came across some of the terrorists’ hideouts that also served as fabricating area for IEDs and the terrorists’ training area.

Another patrol along Bama-Kawuri axis discovered and exhumed IEDs and wires for detonation.

The Nigerian Army, with the support of the Nigerian Air Force and other Security Agencies, said it would not relent in its determined effort of defeating Boko Haram terrorists.
