He also stated that soldiers recovered a dump truck from the Borno State Road Maintenance Agency.

The terrorists fled due to the troops’ superior firepower, while the army recovered 40 sheep.

“Cumulatively, troops recovered 10 AK-47 rifles, five AK-56 rifles, two FN rifles, 227 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, seven AK 47 magazines and one PKM gun.

“Troops also rescued 100 family members of terrorists, who included 33 women.

“Troops also neutralised 14 terrorists and arrested 15.”

This is coming barely three weeks after ISWAP insurgents ambushed a police convoy in Kaga LGA of Borno State, Northeast Nigeria, killing two security personnel and injuring others.
