Nigeria Troops of Lafiya Dole Kill 75 Boko Haram Terrorist
Troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole have killed 75 Boko Haram terrorists and recuperated weapons in the northeast of the country
The Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, discloses this in a statement issued yesterday.
As said by him, the terrorists were killed in an ongoing offensive in the region that resulted in deaths of Boko Haram fighters
Enenche clarified that the Boko Haram fighters met their death during 17 separate encounters with the troops from June 1 to June 30 of this year.
“It is evident from recent encounters with Boko Haram/ISWAP that the resilience of the troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE is being sustained across the North-East Theatre of operation resulting to high BHT/ISWAP casualties on men and equipment as well as capture or surrendering of some of their fighters.
“In their resolve to end BHT/ISWAP menace in the North-East region, from 1 – 30 June 2020, the gallant troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE had a total of 17 encounters with the marauding criminals, neutralizing 75 of them in the process,” the statement partly read.
Speaking further, Enenche said four insurgents including two women were captured and later identified to be the wives of the local Boko Haram commander at Gajingi in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
