Nigerian and Cameroonian troops have killed not less than twenty-seven (27) Boko Haram terrorists in joint clearance operations.
This was according to the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Sagir Musa, who confirmed this in a statement on Monday.
He said they met their Waterloo during an encounter with the troops when they were carrying out clearance operations in northern parts of Wulgo, Tumbuma, Chikun Gudu and Bukar Maryam villages.
According to him, there was no casualty recorded on the part of the Nigerian and Cameroonian forces.
Musa listed items recovered as five gun trucks, five AK 47 rifles, one automatic revolver Galil rifle, one G3 rifle, two General Purpose Machine gun and two Anti Aircraft guns.
He said others were four Rocket Propelled gun tubes, one PK machine gun, one M21 rifle, one locally made Dane gun, five Rocket Propelled gun tube bombs and 1,000 assorted rounds of different calibre ammunition.
Also recovered from them were five AK 47 magazines, several links of 12.7 MM, one land Cruiser Buffalo, one Nissan GT, several motorcycles, one flag and a grinding machine, while one land Cruiser was destroyed.
“Coordinated military operation is ongoing especially in the fringes of Gombaru-Ngala and surrounding areas to deal with the fleeing bandits running out from Multinational Joint Task Force’s (Op YANCIN TAFKI ) onslaught on their hideouts,” he said.
