The Nigerian Army says it has recovered several arms and ammunitions abandoned by fleeing Boko Haram terrorist elements in Borno State.

“Following reliable information about movement of remnants of suspected Boko Haram terrorists, troops of 118 Task Force Battalion, 7 Brigade, laid an ambush for the terrorists today morning,” the Army said in a statement issued on Thursday by Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman.

The troops were said to have laid the ambush about 3 kilometres away from Goneri town, South West of Kukawa Local Government Area, where they encountered the unsuspecting terrorists in two gun trucks and on motorcycles and engaged them. An unconfirmed number of the terrorists escaped with gun-shot wounds

The items recovered from the terrorists according to the Army include one Buffalo Land Cruiser gun truck mounted with an Anti-Aircraft gun, 1,600 rounds of 12.7mm Armour Piercing Incendiary (API) ammunitions, 563 rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition for General Purpose Machine Guns and 57 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition.

“The troops further recovered one motorcycle, seven jerry cans of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and Automotive Gasoline Oil (AGO), a pair of Nigerien Army uniform, two Cameroonian telecommunication service providers SIM cards, as well as a pair of the Boko Haram terrorists   Special Forces uniform.

“They also recovered one Samsung Galaxy Tablet and assorted drugs such as Climax Oxytocin, Tetracyclic HC1 Ointment, Drips and Springe, amongst others.

“Consolidating on this success, the troops are further exploiting the situation while troops of 157 Task Force Battalion are blocking likely escape routes of remnants of the terrorists in Mile 90, Yoyo, Barwati and Kekeno villages.”
