Nigerian troops have intercepted documents containing a list of communities about to be attacked by Boko Haram and sketches of the towns from fleeing terrorists in Adamawa State.

In two separate operations spanning Adamawa and Bauchi states, the troops also killed 27 suspected terrorists during fierce confrontations in a bid to rid the areas of insurgency.

During a hot pursue of the terrorists around Hildi, Adamawa State, at least seven of the terrorists lost their lives while a total of five rifles, hundreds of rounds of ammunition as well as bows and arrows were captured from them.

During another special raid operation conducted on Balmo and Lame forests linking Borno, Bauchi and Adamawa states, the determined troops recovered rifles and a number of motorcycles after a stiff resistance by terrorists was crushed.

Over 20 of them lost their lives while some were reported wounded.

Defence Spokesman, General Chris Olukolade, who confirmed the incidents to PRNigeria, said six soldiers were wounded in the encounter.

“At the end of the encounter, troops eventually took firm control of the forest location,” he said.

Olukolade assured that the campaign against terrorists’ activities is continuing with air and land operations being conducted in various theatres in parts of the country.
