Gallant troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade Nigerian Army, along with some Civilian JTF, on Friday overwhelmed Boko Haram terrorists during a Fighting Patrol in some villages around Ngala, Borno State.

“The patrol team had a fierce encounter with the terrorists at Ndufu which they decisively dealt with before proceeding to clear Muktu and Muzuri, as well as nearby communities within the area,” Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, said last night.

“Although some of terrorists fled to various direction on sighting the troops, the patrol team was able to neutralise 9 terrorists, destroyed their Improvised Explosive Device (IED) making factory and rescued 998 persons. Those rescued were 125 at Ndufu, 802 at Muktu and 71 persons at Muzuri. Interestingly, despite the heat of the battle, the troops also vaccinated all children under the age of 5 with Polio vaccinations,” Usman said in a statement.

He disclosed that, in addition, “the troops recovered 1 AK-47 Rifle with registration number 565231515, an AK-47 Rifle Magazine, 2 Boko Haram terrorists flags, 4 Motorcycles, 2 Solar Panels, 2 already prepared IEDs, Detonating cords and other explosive making components.”

The Army Spokesman noted that “3 Battalion has maintained its status as one of the best fighting unit in the theatre as they did not sustain any casualty or injury during the operation.”
