Troops Take Out Boko Haram Insurgents, Rescue Hostages in Borno

Troops of the Nigerian Army’s Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) have killed three Boko Haram fighters and rescued nine kidnap victims in Borno State.

The operation reportedly unfolded during routine patrols by the 21st Armored Brigade in the Bama County of Borno.  Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert with a focus on the Lake Chad region, revealed details of the operation.

“The terrorists were neutralized during a fighting patrol by troops of the 202 Battalion in conjunction with Hybrid forces,” the expert explained.  “The troops also recovered two Dane guns from the insurgents.”

According to additional intelligence sources, a separate operation, conducted in collaboration with the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) and Hybrid forces, also yielded positive results.

“Troops conducted clearance operations in Angwan Jingina and Bula Marwa on March 30th,” Makama further stated. “The troops successfully rescued nine persons, including three adult females and six children.  The troops also destroyed Boko Haram camps in the area, forcing the terrorists to flee.”

The successful rescue operation and neutralization of insurgents are a testament to the ongoing efforts of the Nigerian military in the fight against terrorism in the Northeast.  However, the continued presence and activity of Boko Haram highlight the persistent security challenges in the region.
