Two soldiers were killed on Sunday fresh clash between troops of Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) and terrorists believing to the Boko Haram (BH) and Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) sects.

Army spokesman Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, who disclosed this in a statement, however, noted that the land and air component troops of the Joint Task Force annihilated several BH and ISWAP terrorists in an encounter at Gajiram Nganzai Local Government Area of Borno State.

According to him, the vigilant troops of Sector 3 Operation Hadin Kai supported by the Nigerian Air Force component, brought a devastating volume of fire upon the terrorists who were attempting to infiltrate the Forward Operating Base using Gun trucks and several other weapons.

 
The terrorists are said to have retreated in disarray after suffering several human and equipment casualties.

The gallant troops, who are currently exploiting the withdrawal route of the fleeing terrorists, have so far recovered 10 AK 47 riffles, one Anti Aircraft Gun, one Shilka barrel, one 60mm Mortar tube and 61 rounds of PKT riffle ammunition amongst others. Several charred remains of the terrorists were also uncovered along the route.

Sadly, two gallant soldiers paid the supreme price during the encounter. 

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya in his reaction to the development urged the troops to aggressively maintain the momentum of the pursuit until the remnants of the fleeing terrorists are destroyed.
