Troops of Sector 2 Joint Task Force North East, Operation HADIN KAI have neutralised two Islamic State West Africa Province/ Boko Haram insurgents in the Babangida Community in Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State,

The feat was recorded during a counter-attack by the troops who responded to the insurgents’ infiltration attempt into the community on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

According to a statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed that the insurgents’ effort to infiltrate and pillage the community was resisted with a fierce counter-attack by the vigilant troops, forcing them to withdraw in disarray, leaving traces of blood littering their route as they fled.

He said, as a result of the logistics blockade imposed on the insurgents, the criminal elements desperately indulge in looting activities in order to replenish their dwindling logistics.

The Director noted that aside from inflicting casualty on the insurgents, the gallant troops also captured one BHT/ISWAP Heckler and Koch 21 Guns, three AK 47 rifle magazines, 213 links of 7.62mm (NATO) and two grenades as further exploitation by the troops is still ongoing.

Responding, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya commended the Troops for their doggedness in expeditiously conducting the counter-attack. He also encouraged them to remain resolute in the ongoing operations against the insurgents.

He enjoined the law-abiding people of Yobe State and the North East, in general, to remain assured of the troops’ determination to rout the Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa Province terrorists from their hideouts. They were also encouraged to continue to avail the troops with actionable information that would enhance the execution of the ongoing Counter Terrorism Counter Insurgency operations in the region.
