According to Defence Headquarter in Abuja, large quantities of weapons were recovered in the raid are still being evacuated from the scene.

The military also confirmed that several terrorists died in a night raid of the camp.

The military said similar operations took place in coordination with the troops of Multi-National Joint Task Force in other camps located in the outskirts of Duguri, Polkime, Malafatori and other locations around the fringes of Lake Chad.

“Substantial money in different currencies and denominations were also recovered from the camps.  A total of seven terrorists were captured in the operation during which altogether a soldier died while five were wounded.”

The Defence said troops conducting cordon and search for remnants of the daring terrorists who attacked Giwa Barracks in Maiduguri last week had an encounter with some of the surviving terrorists in the general area of Kayamla and Alu Dam in the outskirts of Maiduguri.

An unspecified number of terrorists have been killed and arrested in the ongoing encounters.

“Those captured in the encounter are providing useful information towards the discovery of other hide outs of the daring terrorists,” the Defence added.
