The troops of 25 Task Force Brigade Nigerian Army on Friday destroyed another Improvised Explosives Device (IED) making factory at Miyati and Nyaleri villages, along Maiduguri-Bulabulin-Damboa road, in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.
The troops under Operation Lafiya Dole also arrested three terrorists comprising an “Ameer”, a high contact and a foot soldier and discovered apart from the IED making equipment, a Peugeot pick up van, foodstuffs, 10-KVA Lister generator, gas cylinders, borehole, pumping machine, three bags of maize, one bag of millet and 13 empty AGO jerry cans, amongst others.
The joint operation between the Brigade and Nigerian Air Force who provided air cover and tracking, according to Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, acting Director Army Public Relations, was part of the determined effort by the military to rout out terrorists in the general area and open more roads hitherto held by the terrorists for public usage.
“It is also part of the renewed effort and vigour on the part of our troops to meet up with the set dateline that has turned the tide and momentum of the battle against the Boko Haram terrorists in our country.
“I am glad to say that the troops are on high morale and very excited with their accomplishment thus far.”
In a related development, troops have made substantial progress in an advance to reclaim and destroy terrorists held areas within Gamboru Ngala general area.
