The Nigerian Army says its troops in the north-eastern part of the country have killed five Boko Haram members.

The troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade reportedly ambushed the Boko Haram members on Thursday, June 29, 2017 according to Sani Usman, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army.

“The troops neutralised five terrorists and on further exploitation recovered one AK-47 rifle with registration number 565203290, one AK-47 magazine, three rounds of 7.62mm (special) ammunition, 27 bicycles, 10 Machetes and one dagger,” Usman, the director of Army public relations, said.

NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Boko Haram terrorists may have decided to adopt the planting of improvised explosive devices at strategic places and roads in the north-east.

 

This is proven by recent discoveries made by the Nigerian Army and its troops combating the activities of the terrorists.
For example, on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, troops of the 151 battalion who were on routine fighting patrol within Lt-Col Abu Ali Range discovered freshly dug hole prepared for IED by suspected of Boko Haram terrorists.
