Troops of Joint Task Force North East Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) deployed at the Forward Operational Base (FOB) of 152 Battalion, Kumshe on Sunday, 20 June 2021 gallantly dealt with elements of Boko Haram terrorists (BHTs) on a suicidal infiltration attempt into the camp.

According to Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director Army Public Relations, the terrorists mounted on 4 Gun Trucks  and several  motorcycles attempted to  infiltrate and attack the camp through the northern part of the troops’ deployment, but were met with the fierce fire of the highly alert troops,  resulting in the instant killing of 6 BHTs.

The troops, who remained dogged and sustained heavy gun fire on the terrorists during the encounter, routed and forced the terrorists to flee in total disarray, leading to the capture of six AK 47 Rifles, one hand held grenade,  assorted drugs and other First Aid items.

 The Chief of Army Staff, Major General Faruk Yahaya has lauded  the troops’ high level of alertness and fighting spirit, urging them to sustain the momentum and ensure that the remnants of terrorists hibernating in the area are completely cleared.
