He added that the troops responded swiftly in a firefight and killed two of the terrorists while others scampered for their dear lives with likely gunshot wounds under the cover of darkness.

According to him, two AK 47 riffles, three magazines, 32 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition and four primed IEDs were recovered from the criminals.

“It would be recalled that earlier in the week, the terrorists suffered heavy losses when they failed in their attack on the headquarters of 26 Task Force Brigade, Bitta.

“The attackers were overpowered by national forces which caused the death of many terrorists and recovery of some weapons.

“Accordingly, the merits of the new concept of super Camp in the operational arena has already started yielding results with troops becoming more mobile, agile, robust and unpredictable.

“Hence, troops continue to dominate the Theatre with mobile patrols, ambushes, deliberate attacks and raids thereby denying the terrorists/criminals freedom of action.

“Already, Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division and Commander sector 1, Operation LAFIYA, Brig. Gen. A.K Ibrahim has commended the troops for their efforts.
