“The terrorists were naturalized in Churchur village during a fighting patrol by the troops of 202 Battalion in conjunction with Hybrid forces. The troops also recovered 2 dane guns,” Makama said.

“Intelligence sources told Zagazola Makama that in a separate Operation in conjunction with Civilian Joint Task Force and HYBRID forces, the troops conducted clearance to T Angwan Jingina and Bula Marwa on March 30, 2024.

“The troops successfully rescued 9 persons comprising 3 adult females and 6 children. The troops equally destroyed the hamlets in the camps of Boko Haram while the terrorists fled.”
