It was a particularly bad day for Boko Haram terrorists operating in the North East as they lost scores of their members yesterday during repeated attempts to enter Konduga, about 70 kilometres to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

For the Nigerian military, the icing on the cake was the capture of “a high ranking terrorists’ leader” who was seriously wounded and is currently being treated in a military medical facility.

PRNigeria quoted military sources as disclosing that the terrorists’ leader, whose name is still being kept a secret, was captured after the second but more fierce battle waged by the insurgents to capture the town following their earlier routing by the military.

Among those captured yesterday in battles where over 60 terrorists were wiped off the face of the earth, the report said.

In addition to their losing scores of their fighters, the terrorists also lost weapons and equipments including 24 riffles, five rockets propelled grenade tubes, two machine guns as well as a Ford Ranger vehicle. Another Ford ranger vehicle was also destroyed.

During the first battle of the day, which lasted over 12 hours, scores of the terrorists were again sent to hell.

“Right now, our troops are combing the vicinity of the battle scene in a cordon and search operation to determine the exact casualty figures suffered by the terrorists in the encounter”, our source declared

During the encounter, three Hilux vehicles, one armoured personnel carrier and a cache of arms and ammunition were confirmed captured by the troops.

In yet another battle which occurred yesterday at Benishek, also in Borno State, troops fought through an ambush, capturing four motorcycles from fleeing terrorists. One soldier, however, lost his life while four others who wounded and are receiving treatment.
