“After the operational engagement, which was firmly supported by the Air Task Force of Operation Hadin Kai and the MNJTF, a battle damage assessment clearly revealed at least 20 BHT were neutralised, 12 AK 47 rifles, 1X Mortar 60mm and large catches of ammunitions of different calibers were recovered.

“Likewise, carefully concealed 5x Gun Trucks and a truck laden with supplies meant for the criminals were destroyed.

“Also, an MRAP fighting vehicle was recovered by the troops; it was carted from a Nigerian Army position in the past,” Adegoke explained.

Adegoke said the attack was met with strong resistance from the terrorists, but the troops “continued aggressive dominance of their assigned areas,” adding that some insurgents tried to escape, but were “neutralised by the vigilant troops.”
