Men of the Nigerian army have successfully eliminated about 30 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
Terrorists numbering over 30 have been eliminated by Nigerian troops.
The clearance operation was carried out by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole around Gamboru axis in Borno State.
This follows a sustained flush out operation which was conducted by The Sunray 3 Battalion in a long range fighting patrol to clear some of the elements of the insurgents around the area.
A military source revealed that the troops cleared deserted places including villages like Gulwa, Dime and later advanced to Musiri where they made contact with the terrorists with fierce fire and inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists.
Several arms and ammunitions including other equipment like sewing machines, sex enhancement drugs, mechanic tool boxes, motor cycles etc were recovered during the operations.
This operation apparently took place the same day the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru had visited Yobe on an operational visit and expressed how proud he is with the success the troops are making against the Boko Haram fight.
The Army boss also expressed how confident he feels that the troops will defeat the insurgents in the second face of Operation Tura Takaibango, while pledging to address the challenges of the troops including their welfare.
