Military authorities have disclosed that troops in Operation Lafiya Dole have recorded tremendous progress in the ongoing Operation Deep Punch 2 in the various sectors, killing 107 Boko Haram terrorists in the process. The troops, however, lost three soldiers and one civilian to the armed bandits.

A statement issued on Tuesday by Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman indicated that so far, the troops have neutralised over 50 Boko Haram terrorists, destroyed and captured high calibre arms and ammunition, especially in the Lake Chad general area.

According to the Army Spokesman, troops on Monday 8th January 2018, cleared Boko Haram terrorists in Metele village, Tumbun Gini and Tumbun Ndjamena.

“During the clearance operations, Boko Haram terrorists abandoned the area in disarray leaving behind livestock, large quantity of foodstuff, motorcycles and donkeys.

“Also in Metele, however, the terrorists attempted to attack troops in harbour, but this was stiffly resisted with heavy casualty on Boko Haram terrorists. Troops neutralised over 57 of them, destroyed gun trucks and other equipment.”

Usman further disclosed that the gallant troops also discovered terrorists’ logistics base at Tumbu Ndjamena, which held stocks of fish, foodstuffs, fuel and motorcycles that were promptly destroyed.

He said: “Troops also captured one Anti-Aircraft Gun, 116 rounds of 12.7mm ammunition with metal links, four Ak-47 rifles, 57 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition (Special), two Light Machine Guns, two Rocket Propelled Grenade 7 (RPG 7) Tubes, with one RPG Bomb and two already primed 36 Hand Grenades.

“Other recovered items include one Small Solar panel with a Gionee mobile phone, one Holy Qur’an, six Hadith Books, as well as five Gun trucks (which were destroyed).”

The military high command also announced that four of its troops paid the supreme price while nine others were wounded in action.

“Specifically, a Boko Haram vehicle laden with Improvised Explosive Devices rammed into an MRAP vehicle which exploded killing three soldiers, a Civilian JTF and wounding the other soldiers.

“The bodies of the gallant and wounded heroes have been evacuated to 8 Division Medical Services and Hospital, Monguno.”
