A statement by the Acting Army Spokesman, Col Sagir Musa disclosed that troops of 112 Task Force Battalion and 22 Brigade in collaboration with members of Civilian Joint Task Force and Vigilante group conducted a robust clearance operation to Kobe and Boboshe villages respectively.

“The troops discovered newly established camps at Dubula village with some bicycles and motorcycle tracks. The camp was destroyed and one of the terrorists was neutralised while trying to escape.

“The following items were recovered: Two terrorists’ flags, two copies of Quran, One Generator Set and two bicycles. Additionally, 13 women and 26 children were rescued during the operation.

“24 out of the children rescued were administered with polio vaccines by Nigerian Army Regimental Medical Officers in line with the Chief of Army Staff directive on the collaboration between the Nigerian Army and National Primary Health Care Development Agency to reach out to areas not captured in the polio vaccination exercise.

“Similarly, the Acting Commanding Officer of 202 Battalion in conjunction with Civilian Joint Task Force, Vigilante and Hunters group conducted a robust offensive clearance operation to Tafana 1 and Tafana 2 villages.

“The troops came in contact with some terrorists who fled their camps on sighting the approach of the ferocious troops in Mines Resistance Anti Patrol vehicles. Troops also neutralised the fleeing terrorists. During the operation, 2 men, 29 women and 25 children were also rescued.

“Other items recovered includes two boxes filled with Quraan, two terrorists’ flags, five bicycles,  five SIM cards of different networks and assorted clothing materials.

“In all the operations and victims so far rescued, it was observed that with the coming of the rainy season, farmers are preparing for the farming season, while the terrorists are also using women and children as farm slaves (labourers) in their farmlands to meet up with daily feeding challenges due to food drought in the forest sustained by the nobly ferocious operations of Nigerian Army troops”.

The Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has commended the troops for their patriotism while urging them to dominate the battle space with aggressive clearance operations from all flanks.
