Borno - Troops on counter-terrorism in the North East have reported a successful operation against terrorists who attempted a revenge mission to Konduga in Borno State.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Defense Headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday.

“Troops this morning successfully crushed another attempt by terrorists who were on a revenge mission to Konduga, after 12 hours of fighting in the outskirts of the Borno State community. Troops are now combing the vicinity, in a cordon and search operation to determine the heavy casualties suffered by the terrorists in the encounter,” the statement read.
