Insecurity: Troops neutralize terrorists, thwart extremist activities in Kaduna

The Nigerian Army, on Friday, said troops deployed to counter terrorism operations in Kaduna State have neutralized some terrorists and thwarted the activities of violent extremists and abduction of farmers in the Giwa Local Government Area of the state.

This was contained in a post via the Army’s X handle on Friday.

According to the post, the troops, based on actionable intelligence, confirmed that the terrorists were using the Basurfe village, southwest of Kidandan, as their administrative refuge.

However, the troops were met with an ambush but with tactical prowess, fought their way through, forcing the insurgents to scatter in various directions.

Amidst the intense confrontation, troops spotted some of the terrorists attempting to escape the area on motorbikes and effectively engaged them, neutralizing two terrorists.

“The valiant troops also captured two AK-47 rifles, three magazines and a motorbike. “The operation further gained momentum as the troops discovered the insurgents’ administrative refuge, situated on a strategic high ground.

“The troops launched a ferocious onslaught and dislodged the enclave leading to seizure of a Semi Automatic Pump-action rifle, 16 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), two Baofeng communication radio sets and a bag containing medical supplies, tobacco hand gloves and face masks”, the post read.
