Troops Kill Boko Haram Fighters In Yobe


Troops of 27 Task Force Brigade, Operation Hadin Kai, have confirmed killing scores of members of Boko Haram terrorists in a fresh attack at Buni Yadi axis in Yobe State.

A counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in the Lake Chad region, Mr Zagazola Makama, said that the members of terrorists came on motorcycles to the outskirt of the town at about 6:21pm and fired several mortar bombs targeting the military base, but the bombs fell in different directions without recording any impact.

The sources said on sighting the vigilant troops, the terrorists fled toward the axis of Goniri and were then engaged in a gun battle, resulting in the extermination of scores of the terrorists while others took to their heels due to superior firepower from the dogged troops.

Others sources confirmed that the members of terrorists were later sighted evacuating the dead bodies of their fighters, “they wanted to try their luck today and they lost badly,” he said.

“This was their second failed attack on our troops. Last week, they claimed to have fired five mortar shells at our base and claimed that, it a was victory despite landing in the bushes.
