Troops of Joint Task Force North East Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) deployed alongside Cameroonian Defence Force have foiled an attempt by fighters of the Boko Haram and ISWAP to infiltrate the Forward Operating Base (FOB) Wulgo on 18 October 2021.

The vigilant troops successfully foiled an attempted infiltration of the terrorists group into the camp while on a patrol to dominate their area of responsibility.

The troops swiftly responded with an overwhelming volume of fire and spontaneous reinforcement from the Battalion Headquarters, compelling the terrorists to retreat.

Troops immediately carried out a hot pursuit and exploitation after the encounter, along the terrorists’ route of withdrawal and neutralised three BHTs. The gallant troops also recovered three AK 47 rifles, six magazines and 50 rounds of 7.62mm special.

In another development, four ISWAP/BHTs terrorists met their Waterloo on the same date, around 151 Battalion location. The terrorists were burnt beyond recognition as their Gun truck mounted with Anti-Aircraft Guns ran over Vehicle Improvised Explosive Device.

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya has commended the efforts of the troops and charged them to remain aggressive and focused, as they dominate their areas of operational responsibility, in order to ensure complete extermination of the terrorists and restoration of normalcy.
