 Troops of 27 Task Force Brigade deployed at Buni Gari, Borno State, arrested another suspected Boko Haram terrorist, Isah Garba, aged 20 years, while on perimeter patrol on June 25, 2017.

Army Spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman, disclosed this in a statement issued on Wednesday. According to him, preliminary investigation was difficult as the suspect was found to be under the influence of heavy dosage of drugs but has since stabilised and is now making useful statements.

“Also, troops of 29 Task Force Brigade while on patrol on 28th June along Wajiro-Mallam Kuramti cattle route discovered an IED planted by suspected Boko Haram terrorists. The EOD team safely removed and detonated it.

“On the same day, at about 3.30pm, troops of 151 Battalion of 21 Brigade on patrol to Mayanti village were ambushed by suspected elements of Boko Haram terrorists. The troops successfully cleared the ambush by neutralising some of the terrorists, while reinforcement was immediately dispatched to mop up the general area. The team recovered a 60mm Commando Mortar Bomb, 13 rounds of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition and 51 rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition,” the Army said.

Meanwhile, the remains of two gallant soldiers that paid the supreme price on Saturday, June 17, 2017, along Damboa-Biu road in Borno State, were on Wednesday buried according to Islamic religious rites at the Gombe military ceremony. Brig-Gen. Usman gave their names as 11NA/66/10788 Lance Corporal Auwal Halliru and 15NA/73/0188 Private Halilu Aliyu of 254 Task Force Battalion.
