Sixty-Four Boko Haram terrorists Killed In Borno, Yobe States – Defense Hq says

1 Mins read

In a news conference in Abuja on Thursday, the Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche said the Military and other security agencies have continued their major operations across the country with renewed vigor.

As part of efforts to reduce acts of terrorism and insurgency to the barest minimum in the country, the Military has announced the killing of sixty-four Boko Haram terrorists in Borno and Yobe States.

“This was achieved during air strikes executed on the location after the BHT were spotted in a compound concealed in a dense vegetation of the location,” he said.

“The location which served as hideout and used by the terrorists to coordinate their nefarious activities were taken out as the Nigerian Air Force attack aircraft took turns in engaging the targets. During the air strikes, several terrorists were also neutralized.”

General Enenche, also, warned against illegal acquisition of fertilizers as he explained that while they are basically for agricultural purposes, the possibility of it being acquired by criminal gangs, terrorists and militants for sinister purposes cannot be disregarded.

This, according to him, is because fertilizer has remained a potential component for the fabrication of explosives owing to its content of ammonium nitrate.

“The High Command reassures the general public of its untiring commitment towards securing the country,” General Enenche added.
