- Destroy 7 Gun Trucks, Recover Arms
Troops of Operation TURA TAKAIBANGO in conjunction with the Air Task Force Operation LAFIYA DOLE, have effectively destroyed 7 Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists' gun trucks and decimated several unconfirmed numbers of the terrorists when they attempted to attack their location at the outskirts of Marte in Marte Local Government Area of Borno State.
Reliable information about the attack revealed that the gallant troops had positioned themselves in an ambush site where they tactically withdrew to and awaited the arrival of the terrorists before they opened fire which led to the fierce battle that resulted in the successes recorded.
A statement on Saturday by Acting Director, Defence Media Operations of the Defence Headquarters, Brigadier Bernard Onyeuko, said the troops are still engaged in the pursuit of the fleeing terrorists for further exploitation.
The Defence Headquarters also said further details of public interest will be communicated later. NNL.
