Troops of 151 Battalion in a fighting patrol along Jebbra – Firgi Banki axis of Borno State, a notable crossing point of the insurgents, have  killed two boko haram terrorists and recovered weapons.

The deputy director, Army Public Relations 7 Division /Sector 1 of  Operation Lafiya Dole, Col. Ado Isa said the troops in their resolve to dominate their general area of operation as well as to deny the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) freedom of action at about 1921hrs on 16 February 2019 embarked on aggressive fighting patrol and also mounted an ambush on the known terrorists’ crossing point.

He noted that the terrorists in a crafty move bypassed troops through another route but were however noticed by troops who followed in a hot pursuit with fire power on target thereby inflicting heavy casualties on the runaway terrorists who scampered for their lives in disarray.

He said during the operation, troops neutralised two BHTs and unconfirmed number of terrorists fled with gunshot wounds.

Items recovered include two motorcycles, seven bicycles charms and other assorted drugs.

Further exploitation of the general area was conducted at first light on 17 February, 2019 and the troops have returned to base in high morale.
