A joint patrol team of Sector 1 of 27 Task Force Brigade and Army Headquarters Strike Group has stormed some villages in Borno State and cleared Boko Haram terrorists’ enclaves. The villages include Buhari, Matari and Kaidiri, located some kilometres to Damasak, Borno State.
According to the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, the remnants of the terrorists at Kaidiri on sighting the patrol team withdrew and escaped to Niger Republic with gunshot wounds.
Although the troops pursued them, only two Boko Haram terrorists were caught. Seven motorcycles and borehole equipment were also recovered.
Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people since it began its campaign of violence in 2009.
