Two women and six Children were rescued, on Monday, from the Boko Haram Terrorists by troops of the 121 Battalion in conjunction with hunters in an ambush operation against some fleeing members of BHTs, a statement by Col. Ado Isa, Deputy Director, Public Relations of the 7 Division Nigerian Army/Operation, has stated.

The operation occurred at Gwadala village, in the North-Eastern part of Borno State.

During the operation, contact was made with the criminals at Gwadala village axis.

Own troops neutralised one of the terrorists, others escaped with gunshot wounds and the following items were recovered, include 1 AK 47 rifle, 1 dane gun, and locally fabricated Ammo and projectiles.

The projections for ambushes, clearance operations and fighting patrols are part of the efforts embarked upon by the dogged troops of the 7 Division Nigerian Army to consolidate the gains and successes recorded so far in the ongoing operation “Halaka Dodo”.

The recent efforts are with a view to ensuring that the remnants of the BHTs are exterminated, while achieving lasting peace and security in the North-East.

The Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division Nigerian Army and Commander Sector 1 Operation Lafiya Dole, Brigadier General Abdulmalik Bulama Biu, applauded the gallant troops for their doggedness and also conveyed the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai’s commendation for the successes so far achieved in the ongoing counter terrorism operations.

The Army, therefore, urged the members of the public within the theatre to cooperate with the Army and other security agencies by sharing credible and timely information to troops in their efforts to fighting terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria.
