Troops buoyed by breakthroughs against Boko Haram

02 May 2016, 11:11

Abuja - Troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade of Operation Lafiya Dole have uncovered a secret Boko Haram terrorists’ improvised explosive making device factory in Ngala town Borno State north eastern Nigeria.

An unspecified number of alleged terrorists have been killed.

Confirming the report, acting Director Army Public Relations Colonel Sani Kukasheka said 20 gas cylinders of various sizes prepared and ready for explosive insertion, primers, gun powder, electric wires and tape recorders and other items were recovered from the factory.

“It will recall that despite their defeat, the terrorists continued to attack innocent citizens, military and soft targets through vehicular and human borne Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). Despite ongoing clearance of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists, they persistently hid the IED manufacturing factories location,” reported Usman.

“However, that would be no more, thanks to the efficient intelligence and resilience of our troops. It was based on this that we got,” he said.

“Credible and timely information that made troops to swoop on one of such factories in Ngala town and destroyed it and killed some of the Boko Haram terrorists.”

The Army spokesman added that troops in various parts of the theatre of operation Lafiya Dole were doing well and their morale remain very high.
