It is becoming evident that the deadly Boko Haram sect is also lead by foreigners who want to destroy our dead country, Nigeria. Below is a statement from Major General Chris Olukolade:
Thousands of foreign currency was found on the body of a terrorist commander after troops successfully repelled another deadly terrorist attack on Mafa. The terrorist who is also an Amir by status and believed to be of foreign descent, is among about 30 Boko Haram fighters who died in the encounter while many others fled with wounds.
The terrorists also lost a number weapons and equipment including the captured 13 rifles, a machine gun, rocket propelled grenade tubes and several other assorted ammunition.
A Toyota Bufallo vehicle was also recovered from the terrorists. Two of their armored vehicles were
also destroyed in the battle. The only casualty on the side of own troops was damaged equipment.
Mopping up operations is ongoing in the general area.
Meanwhile, the offensive on all terrorists’ hideouts is continuing in many fronts.
