Nigerian troops, from the 22 Brigade Garrison, Army Headquarters Strike Group, on Sunday captured three Boko Haram terrorists in Kadawu, Borno State.
Four motorcycles, three bicycles, one solar panel and two containers of liquid herbicides were recovered from the terrorists.
Three more Boko Haram terrorists were captured at another village, Garna, and seven locally-made guns recovered from them.
The troops, accompanied by some civilian JTF, were on patrol to the two villages, including other villages like Boboshe, Kyare, Gineba, and Ajiri in the state, according to information released by the Nigerian Army.
The troops recovered bomb-making equipment – eight industrial gas cylinders and five regular gas cylinders, and a pick-up truck, at a primary school in Boboshe village.
The village was deserted by the time the soldiers arrived.
