Iliyasu stated: “During the operation, the Boko Haram insurgents were dealt with, forcing them to flee the location in disarray. Troops destroyed all the criminals’ structures, farmlands, harvested grains stored in underground bunkers and one Lister grinding machine.

“In another encounter at Fadama, the criminals’ flag hoisted on a tree was captured and lowered after the troops had subdued the insurgents with superior fire power forcing them to flee in disarray.

“Also, troops of the 151 Battalion, Sector 1, defeated a bunch of Boko Haram criminal insurgents in the early hours of December 25, while on a clearance operation conducted deep into the Sambisa Forest.”
