Gajiram, Buni Yadi: Boko Haram terrorists continue to suffer defeats



This week appears to all failure for members of Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP, as troops of Operation Hadin Kai continue to hit them hard.

On both their two recent attempts, they suffered heavy casualties.

On Monday, the terrorists attacked Gajiram, the headquarters of Nganzai Local Government in Borno, but it ended with losing over 50 of their fighters, according to Ashiekh Mamman, the chairman of the local government.

Similarly, they also attacked Buni Yadi Town in Yobe State on Tuesday, which did not augur well for them either.

On the Buni Yadi, Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Nigerian Army spokesman said the terrorists, who attempted to gain access into the town mounted on gun trucks, met stiff resistance from troops of 27 Task Force Brigade, Nigerian Army Special Forces School, supported by the Nigerian Air Force.

They, along also with men or the Nigerian Force Force, overwhelmed them.

'The ferocious battle forced the criminals to withdraw in different directions having suffered heavy losses. Several gun trucks with their occupants were taken out by the troops.

'Preliminary battle damage assessment revealed the precision with which Air and Land troops engaged the terrorists destroying their gun trucks. Exploitation is still ongoing by troops to take out fleeing remnants of the terrorists.'

Commending troops, he said, Lt. Gen. Faruq Yahaya, the chief of army staff, charged them to sustain the current operational tempo to deny the criminals freedom of action.
