Following credible information from some patriotic Nigerians about terrorists movement along Banki Road Junction, Pulka in Gwoza general area, troops of Special Response Area (SRA)Pulka under the Nigeria Army Super Camp Gwoza, in collaboration with Civilian Joint Task Force conducted a successful night ambush on Thursday, 3 October 2019, which resulted in the neutralization of 3 terrorists, recovery of 2 AK 47 Rifles and 2 motor cycles.
Unconfirmed number of terrorists were reportedly wounded during the ambush and there is no casualty on the Nigeria Army or Civilian Joint Task Force [JTF], Army sources said.
Items recovered by troops include 2 X AK 47 rifles and 2 X bicycles.
Similarly, at about 2250 hours on 3rd October 2019, in what seems like a reprisal attack to avenge the loss of their members in the ambush conducted by the troops, some marauders/criminals woefully attacked the Delta Company Location of the SRA at Pulka.
Consequently, troops swiftly responded by effectively repelling the attack, one bandit lost his life and one AK-47 rifle was recovered. No casualty was recorded by the Civilian Joint Task Force or the troops.
The Acting GOC 7 Division and Commander Sector 1 Operation LAFIYA DOLE Brig Gen AK Ibrahim was in SRA Pulka where he interacted with the troops, commended them for the successes so far and urged them to remain committed and unwavering in the struggle to end the insurgency soon
