Nigerian troops kill 10 Boko Haram terrorist, 13 arrested

No less than 13 members of the Boko Haram terrorist group including six females and four males have been killed by troops of the 8 Task Force Division of the Nigerian Army.

Reports say about 13 other insurgents were also arrested by the troops in Monguno and Nolwodo Malgori areas of Borno State, following a tip-off by well-meaning Nigerians.

According to the army, the 13 insurgents who were killed were fleeing three villages along the Lake Chad, Borno State when they engaged the army in a gun duel but they were all exterminated with live ammunition recovered from them.

Confirming the incident, Col. Timothy Antigha, the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations and 8 Division Spokesman, said, “We rounded up 10 suspected Boko Haram smugglers, six females and four males. We recovered household items, foodstuffs and N63,060 cash from the suspects. They are being profiled to determine their involvement in the Boko Haram insurgency.

“In the ongoing clearance operation on the fringes of Lake Chad, the troops went to Chikun Gudu, Tumbuma Karami and Tumbuma Baba, where we neutralised 13 Boko Haram terrorists, while many others escaped with gunshot wounds.

“We recovered three AK-47 rifles, assorted magazines and 306 rounds of ammunition, a tool box, a deep freezer and a Toyota gun truck. In the same vein, troops destroyed two other Toyota Hilux vehicles, one Toyota truck, two motorcycles and six bicycles,” he added.
