The ambush party supported by a Quick Response Group (QRG) captured a Hilux vehicle containing 8 jerry cans of petroleum, oil and lubricants, large quantity of 7.62mm ammunitions, 127mm ammunitions and 4 AK-47 rifles, as well as 5 hand grenades.

In continuation of their clearance operations of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in the North East, troops of 212 Tank Battalion, 29 Task Force Brigade, early this morning laid an ambush on some Boko Haram elements at a major cattle market in Gwai Mainari around Mainok general area.

The ambush party supported by a Quick Response Group (QRG) captured a Hilux vehicle containing 8 jerry cans of petroleum, oil and lubricants, large quantity of 7.62mm ammunitions, 127mm ammunitions and 4 AK-47 rifles, as well as 5 hand grenades.

Some of the terrorists were killed while others escaped with gunshot wounds. 

It is important to note that more operational strategies are being employed to further flush out the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding in the North East.

In a related development, two soldiers serving with the 143 Battalion of the Nigerian Army have been arrested on suspicion of helping Boko Haram after they were caught trying to transport explosives and ammunition to the terrorists.   

Boko Haram, which has been waging a brutal war against Nigeria since 2009, has enjoyed a lot of success partially due to the fact that it has successfully infiltrated the Nigerian Army. 

During the course of its campaign, Boko Haram has had inside information on troop movement and has carried out several daring raids on army facilities.
