Nigerian Forces Deliver Blow to Terror Groups, Eliminate Over 100

Nigerian security forces are claiming significant victories in their fight against terrorism.  In a week-long operation concluding on Friday, the military killed 135 terrorists and apprehended an additional 182, according to a press statement from Major General Edward Buba, Director of Defence Media Operations.

The nationwide offensive targeted areas known for terrorist activity, with successful operations reported particularly in the Northeast, Northwest, and North Central.  A crucial aspect of the mission involved the rescue of 140 hostages, likely victims of kidnapping by these terrorist groups.

General Buba detailed the recovery of a substantial amount of weaponry during the operations. This included rifles, explosives, and a significant quantity of ammunition, potentially hindering the terrorists’ capabilities. This development offers a positive sign in the ongoing struggle against terrorism in Nigeria.

The coordinated efforts by the military and security agencies demonstrate their resolve to combat this national security threat.  However, the statement remained silent on potential casualties among troops or civilians during the operations.
