Troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade Nigerian Army on Operation LAFIYA DOLE, assisted by 10 Civilian JTF on Monday  embarked on an offensive on suspected location of Boko Haram terrorists at Jarawa general area, Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

 

Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, said last night that the operation was informed by information received yesterday by Operation LAFIYA DOLE. 

“While advancing, the troops came under heavy fire at Jarawa village. The troops responded decisively and went further to clear Deima, Artano, Saduguma, Duve, Bardo, Kala, Bok, Msherde and Ahirde settlements,” Brig.-Gen. Usman said in a statement.

He added: “During the operation, the troops neutralised 21 Boko Haram terrorists, rescued 1,623 residents of Jarawa who were held captives by the terrorists. They also recovered 3 AK-47 Rifles with registration numbers 565222414, 563729686 and UF 3646, a 36 Hand Grenade, 12 Cutlasses and 4 Motorcycles.

“The rescued persons have been escorted to Rann Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp, while all the children were vaccinated.

“One significant aspect of this operation is that the unit noted for its experience in battle, resilience and bravery did not record any casualty.”
