Acting on a tip-off, troops of 93 Battalion, 13 Brigade Nigerian Army on Saturday arrested two suspected Boko Haram terrorists. Mallam Jamilu Adamu and Mallam Garba Adamu, found loitering around at Gishiri village, Ibbi Local Government Area of Taraba State.

Director of Army Public Relations, Brig. General Sani Kukasheka Usman, announced this in a statement issued on Sunday.

He said: “Preliminary investigation revealed that they hailed from Kirta village in Marte Local Government Area of Borno State. It was further confirmed that they were fishermen in Kereta before they were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists who engaged them as boat operators for two years.

"They further claimed that they belonged to the Albarnawi faction of the Boko Haram terrorists group. The suspects also stated that they escaped to Gishiri village from Boko Haram terrorists because of the concerted efforts of the military on the terrorists and also realising the fallacy of the Boko Haram terrorists’ ideology.”

Usman also reported that troops of 121 Battalion of 26 Task Force Brigade of Operation LAFIYA DOLE. in furtherance of the on-going clearance operations, on Friday "gallantly routed Boko Haram terrorists who were taking refuge in the surroundings of Dure, Gwoza Local Government Area, Borno State."

According to him, “the troops engaged the terrorists and smoked them out of their hideouts at Jango, Nduma, Gobara, Bala Ibrahim, Fulani Rogo and Takwala villages and environs in Gwoza Local Government Area.

“During the operations, the troops neutralised 3 Boko Haram terrorists and captured one other terrorist alive, while several terrorists were believed to have escaped with gunshot wounds.

“The troops also recovered one Fabrique Nationals rifle, one G3 rifle, charged magazines and a pair of military camouflage uniform suspected to be used by the terrorists to disguise as military personnel.

“Unfortunately, one soldier sustained injury during the operation. He has since been evacuated to the unit’s Regimental Aid Post, for more medical attention.

“The captured terrorist has been taken into custody for further interrogation and onward passage to relevant agencies.”
