“The troops achieved the feat while acting on credible intelligence”, Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert, in the Lake Chad Region, disclosed.

Makama said the terrorists were moving in the Mafa axis to attack a military post, along the road, when they were intercepted by the troops and Civilian JTF, who laid an ambush against them.

He added that the troops also captured a suspected terrorist alive, while others fled with gunshot wounds into the forest.

“The laid ambush triggered a heavy gunfire between the troops and fleeing terrorists. They later retreated and attempted fleeing, but the ground troops chased them and killed over two dozen terrorists”, Makama said, adding that two members of Civilian JTF were wounded during the fierce gun battle with the terrorists fleeing on motorcycles.

The troops also recovered two motorcycles and other weapons used in attacking communities in the Mafa-Dikwa axis.
