Nigerian troops this afternoon raided the hideout of Boko Haram in Kawuri, Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State in the country’s troubled North-East.

“Over 50 terrorists died this afternoon as troops raided their hideout in Kawuri before setting out on a planned attack on Konduga,” Defence Headquarters tweeted this evening.

It disclosed that one Fabricated Artillery Gun, two Anti-Aircraft guns, an armoured vehicle and assorted types of ammunition were captured in the process.

“Some hardware, weapons, food items and personal belongings were also destroyed in the Kawuri Raid,” according the DHQ.

Only one officer and two soldiers were said to have been seriously wounded in the operation.

News Express reports that the raid came less than 24 hours after the Nigerian military vowed to everything to subdue the terrorists and defend the country’s sovereignty as well as territorial integrity.
