According to reports, the troops of 21 Task Force Brigade Bama in conjunction with the Civilian Joint Task Force(CJTF) carried out the raid on Tuesday.

The troops reportedly invaded enclaves of the Boko Haram terrorists in the fringes of Sambisa Forest in the Bama Local Government Area of the state following credible intelligence.

Speaking on the raid, a security source reportedly said: “Our troops dislodge and killed many insurgents, their camp was completely outrun by gallant troops and Civilian JFT in Samabisa Forest.”

Corroborating the account, Counter Insurgency Expert in the Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama, quoted a military source that the troops successfully overran the terrorists.

“During the operation, the gallant troops neutralized 18 terrorists,” he said, adding that property and makeshift tents belonging to the terrorists were destroyed.

Recall that hundreds of insurgents have been killed at Sheutari and Mutari general area recently due to infighting between the two warring outlawed groups.
