DHQ3The Defence Headquarters Thursday announced that at least 20 Boko Haram insurgents were killed by troops during raids in communities around Maiduguri and Dikwa, Borno State.

The troops also destroyed camps used by the insurgents at forest locations in mountainous areas around Adamawa State.

A statement by the Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade said various brands of machine guns and Improvised Explosive Devices were recovered from the insurgents.

Olukolade added that some of the troops sustained varying degree of injuries during the encounters.

The statement said: “Attempts by terrorists to attack Ajiri and Mafa as well as other communities in the outskirt of Maiduguri and Dikwa in Borno State towards the Cameroon borders, yesterday were foiled by the security forces.

“The ambush mounted by the terrorists to enable them unleash terror on the communities unchallenged, was also cleared by troops on reinforcement mission”.

The DHQ, however, decried what it described as inflammatory statements by some highly placed persons in government and some apparently sponsored commentators in and outside the country.

According to the defence spokesperson, the unnamed highly placed persons have consistently be giving false and misleading remarks to describe the disposition of troops in the ongoing operations.

“It has become clear that this sustained campaign is intended to demoralise the troops and give the impression that the military is overwhelmed by the terrorist group.  This tendency is unfortunate, to say the least.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, it is hereby restated that the Nigerian military cannot by any standard be overwhelmed by the insurgents neither will the devious antics of their sympathisers and sponsors demoralise the fighting spirit of troops.

“Nigerians and indeed all well-wishers are enjoined to discountenance the propaganda messages of the terrorists and their backers alleging the inability of Nigerians troops to handle the insurgency”, the statement added.
