Operatives of Joint Task Force, North East, Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) deployed at the Forward Operational Base (FOB) of 152 Battalion, Kumshe, in Borno State have foiled attempts by elements of Boko Haram to carry out a suicidal infiltration into the camp.

Disclosing this today, the Director of Army Public Relations, DAPR, Brig-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, said that the terrorists who were 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.
