Troops of the 112 Task Force Battalion on clearance operations in conjunction with Civilian Joint Task Force have neutralized more members of the Boko Haram terrorists when they raided a cluster of recently-established camps along Kajeri village, Borno state.
A statement released Wednesday by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, indicated that during the operation two women and three children suspected to have been kidnapped by the terrorists were rescued by troops around the bushes of Kajeri and Saleri villages.
He explained that the rescued women and children will be handed over to the appropriate agency for further action.
“The camps were destroyed and burnt down by the troops, while they advanced further and cleared the surrounding dispersed localities in the general area of Kajeri and Saleri axis of the State”, Colonel Musa noted.
According to him, a thorough search of the camps resulted in the recovery: two dane guns, eight Cartridges, two torchlights and bicycle.
