Troops kill three at Boko Haram terrorists’ market in Borno
The Nigerian Army on Saturday said troops of the Joint Task Force, North-East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), killed three Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists and destroyed their market in Borno.
The spokesperson for the army, Onyema Nwachukwu, said the troops of 5 Brigade, Sector 3 while consolidating on their dogged push recorded a decisive victory against the terrorists on Friday.
He said that the troops while conducting clearance operations, code-named “Operation Dominance I,” came in contact with the insurgents at an illegal market operated by the terrorists in Gallo Malawari Village.
“In the fierce encounter, three BH/ISWAP terrorists were neutralised, while others, bowing to superior firepower retreated in disarray.
“Troops recovered one AK 47 Rifle, a truck, two motorcycles, four empty magazines, and rounds of 7.62mm ammunition amongst others,” he added.
