Onyeuko noted that the achievement followed military operations across Nigeria’s North-East region between May 19 and June 2.

He also claimed that the military rescued 100 terrorists’ family members in the North East, including 67 children and 33 women.

He explained that on May 22, troops working with the Civilian Joint Task Force killed terrorists at Ndakaine, Jango, Sabah, Amdaga, Balazola, and Gobara in Borno’s Gwoza Local Government Area.

During the engagement, the terrorist hideouts of Boko Haram and the Islamic States West Africa Province (ISWAP) in the area were leveled and eliminated, according to Onyeuko.

He said troops also recovered a dump truck belonging to the Borno State Road Maintenance Agency.

The terrorists fled due to the troops’ superior firepower, while troops recovered 40 sheep.

“Cumulatively, troops recovered 10 AK-47 rifles, five AK-56 rifles, two FN rifles, 227 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, seven AK 47 magazines and one PKM gun.

“Troops also rescued 100 family members of terrorists, who included 33 women.

“Troops also neutralised 14 terrorists and arrested 15.”
