Abuja - Ten terrorists were reportedly killed and 45 civilians rescued during joint operations between Cameroon and Nigerian forces this past weekend.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, disclosed troops of the 121 Task Force Battalion linked up with their Cameroonian counterparts in such areas as Angwan, Bokko Hide, Bokko Nasanu, Bokko Timit, Dale, Fada Mararrabam, Ngoshe and Wizha in the Northeast.

“During the operations all Boko Haram terrorists’ enclaves within the area were cleared. In the process, the troops killed 10 Boko Haram terrorists and also rescued 45 persons which included 17 women and 28 children,” Usman said.

He said the troops from the two countries had made “tremendous” progress.

Meanwhile, last Friday, a patrol team from 5 Brigade, traversing Dogon Gida and New Marte stepped on an undetected Improvised Explosive Device (IED) buried by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

Four soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries and their vehicle was badly damaged.

The wounded soldiers have since been evacuated by Nigeria Air Force.
