Troops of 8 Task Force Division Nigerian Army on a fighting patrol along Monguno-Brimari Road, Borno State on Thursday, intercepted a group of Boko Haram terrorists suspected to be on a mission to loot logistics supplies in surrounding villages.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said in a statement issued on Thursday stated that on sighting the patrol, the insurgents engaged the troops in a shootout that lasted for about 15 minutes before they were overpowered by the superior fire power of the patrol.

“In the encounter, two insurgents were neutralised. The troops recovered weapons including one Fabrique Nationale (FN) rifle loaded with a magazine containing 10 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition, one AK-47 rifle and three magazines from the terrorists. Also recovered from the insurgents were two motorcycles, various drugs, wrappers and clothes.
