A statement by Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said: “The troops of 231 and 331 Battalion together with some elements of Armed Forces Special Forces of 3 Division,  based on received information, have today entered and cleared remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hiding in Doksa general area located in Biu Local Government Area.

“During the clearance, the troops killed 2 Boko Haram terrorists and recovered military uniforms, 1 General Purpose Machine Gun, 1 AK-47 rifle and 2 Dane Guns. They also captured one Boko Haram terrorist alive, who gave his name as Musa Abdullahi.

“The troops also encountered 2 Improvised Explosive Devices buried along their route of advance which they successfully detonated. They also recovered 2 pick-up vans, 25 motorcycles, 30 bicycles and grinding machines, as well as large quantity of foodstuffs. 

“It was however discovered that apart from burying Improvised Explosive Devices, the terrorists often contaminate sources of water in the area.

“Nonetheless, troops in that axis are in high morale and exploiting the general area to clear any reported remnants of Boko Haram in the general area.”
