Troops of Special Response Area(SRA) Pulka under the NA Super Camp Gwoza, in collaboration with Civilian Joint Task Force have neutralised three (3) Boko Haram terrorists in a successful in Maiduguri.
The Nigerian Army made this known in a statement on Friday.
In the statement shared on its official Twitter page, it said the neutralization members of the Boko Haram and the death of one of the terrorists came following credible information from some patriotic Nigerians about terrorists movement along Banki Road Junction, Pulka in Gwoza general area.
The information prompted the troops of SRA, Pulka under the NA Super Camp Gwoza, in collaboration with Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) conducted a successful night ambush on Thu 3 Oct 2019, which resulted in the neutralization of 3 terrorists, recovery of 2 AK 47 Rifles and 2 X bicycles.
It was gathered that unconfirmed number of terrorists were reportedly wounded during the ambush. There is no casualty on the NA or Civilian JTF.
Similarly, at about 2250 hours on 3rd October 2019, in what seems like a reprisal attack to avenge the lost of their members in the ambush conducted by the troops, some marauders/criminals woefully attacked the Delta Company Location of the SRA at Pulka.
Consequently, troops swiftly responded by effectively repelling the attack, one bandit lost his life and one Ak 47 rifle was recovered. No casualty was recorded by the Civ JTF or the troops.
Commending the troops, the Acting GOC 7 Division and Commander Sector 1 Operation LAFIYA DOLE Brig Gen AK Ibrahim urged them to remain committed and unwavering in the struggle to end the insurgency soon.
