Troops of 26 Task Force Brigade in Gwoza, Borno State in Nigeria’s troubled North-East, yesterday evening engaged Boko Haram terrorists fleeing from their Sambisa Forest stronghold following continued aerial bombardment by the Nigerian Air Force.

“The fleeing terrorists in 7 Pick-up vans and some motorcycles mounted with assorted weapons such as Rocket Propelled Grenades and Anti-Aircraft Guns were decisively dealt with, killing quite a number of them,” Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said this morning.

“The troops also destroyed their vehicles, weapons and motorcycles. They also recovered a vehicle, 1 motorcycle and 2 AK47 riffles and large quantities of 7.62mm NATO and 12.7mm ammunitions,” he added.

Col. Usman disclosed that the troops have intensified their patrols and offensive actions against the terrorists in the area.
