During an assault on a terrorist hideaway, troops killed 14 terrorists and rescued children.


The Nigerian military stormed Boko Haram and Islamic States West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorist hideouts at Amdaga, Balazola, Ndakaine, Jango, Sabah, and Gobara, all in the Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.

Maj.-Gen. Bernard Onyeuko, Director, Defence Media Operations, told journalists at Defence headquarters in Abuja on Thursday, June 2, that troops attached to Operation Hadin Kai, in conjunction with the Civilian Joint Task Force, cleared the hideouts during the operations and killed 14 terrorists.

The operatives are said to have rescued 100 terrorists' family members, including 33 women and 67 children.

Terrorists hijacked a truck belonging to the Borno State Road Maintenance Agency on old Marte Road in February, and it was recovered.

According to Onyeuko,

"Furthermore, on May 31, forces repelled a terrorist onslaught at Firm Base Arege in Borno's Abadam Local Government Area, inflicting numerous deaths on the attackers while others fled in confusion." 10 AK-47 weapons, five AK-56 rifles, two FN rifles, 227 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, seven AK-47 magazines, and one PKM pistol were recovered in total. One AA gun, 164 rounds of AA ammo, 111 Shilka rounds, one gun truck, one Shilka barrel, two dane guns, two IEDs, one automobile engine, four trollies, and one water pump machine were also discovered. Troops also rescued 100 terrorists' family members, including 33 women. In addition, 14 terrorists were killed and 15 were detained by troops.

"As a result, all apprehended terrorists, rescued terrorist family members, and recovered materials have been turned over to the proper authorities for future action."
