Troops of Operation Hadin Kai have killed six Boko Haram terrorists following a raid on their enclaves in the fringes of Sambisa Forest in Borno State.
The troops carried out the operation in conjunction with the Civilian Joint Task Force(CJTF), and Hybrid Forces on Thursday, September 7, 2023, at Garin Ba’aba in Bama Local Government Area.
Intelligence sources told Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad region, that the terrorists tried to show some resistance but the troops engaged and neutralised them.
“We entered their village at Garin Ba’abba which is inside Sambisa forest, we encountered their surveillance team known as “Murabitun ” and instantly naturalized four among them.
“The rest of the Boko Haram began screaming Allahu Akhbar, Allahu Akhbar and started firing from their position. But in the gunbattle that ensued, we gunned down two more terrorists while the rest escaped,” said the sources.
