A very large number of terrorists have met their waterloo in a double defeat by Nigerians troops between Maiduguri and Damboa, Borno State, on Friday.

The first of the clashes followed the troops’ move to stop the terrorists who were in the process of attacking the electricity engineers who were working to restore power to parts of the state. A large number of the terrorists died in the process.

When contacted, Defence Spokesman, Major General Chris Olukolade, confirmed the incidents but insisted that the exact casualty figures were still being ascertained.

During the encounter, the troops also captured a Hilux vehicle earlier stolen by the terrorists from the Borno State Ministry of Education, which they repainted and mounted with an ant-aircraft gun.

Other weapons recovered by troops include rocket propelled grenades and rifles. Unfortunately however, two soldiers died in the encounter.

In a similar development, Military Engineer troops who have been clearing terrorists IEDs and effecting repairs on bridges repelled an attack while working on a bridge around Husara.

Several terrorists also died in the encounter. A total four General Purpose Machine Guns, three rifles and two Rocket Propelled Grenade Launchers were captured from the terrorists during the encounter. One soldier however died while three others were wounded in the encounter.

Meanwhile, in Adamawa State, troops continue with the conduct of land patrol of towns of Mubi, Uba, Garkida, Muva and others towns and villages as their advance through coordinated air and land operations in furtherance of counterterrorism campaign.
