The Army on Wednesday said its troops, Operation Lafiya Dole, killed nine suspected terrorists at Bulabulin, Borno.

Sani Usman, acting Director, Army Public Relations, said in a statement that the troops had also wounded several others in the fight which lasted for about an hour.

“The troops’ hand held radio was, however, badly damaged during the encounter,” Mr. Usman said.

Mr. Usman said two AK-47 rifles, two hand grenades, one Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs), five jerrycans of Premium Motor Spirit and nine motorcycles were recovered from the terrorists.

“The troops would continue the clearance operation of the remnants of the Boko Haram in nooks and crannies of their areas of operation with renewed vigour and determination.”
