Troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade of Operation LAFIYA DOLE have discovered and taken over a Boko Haram factory for the manufacture of Improvised Explosive Devices located in Ngala town, Borno State.
Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka, said this took place on Friday, “thanks to the efficient intelligence and resilience of our troops.”
According to Col. Usman, “It was based on this that we got credible and timely information that made troops to swoop on one of such factories in Ngala town and destroyed it and killed some of the Boko Haram terrorists.
“In addition, they recovered 20 gas cylinders of various sizes prepared and ready for explosive insertion, primers, gun powder, electric wires and tape recorders, amongst other items.”
“It is heart-warming to inform the public that troops in various parts of the theatre of operation LAFIYA DOLE are doing well and their morale remains very high,” the Army Spokesman said in a statement issued on Sunday afternoon.
