Troops uncover terrorists’ corpses, grenades


Nigerian troops have recovered bodies of terrorists, 36 hand grenades and one 12.7 X 108mm round of ammunition concealed by terrorists in the general area of Baga, Kangarwa and Dogonchikun in Borno.

The substantive Director of the Nigerian Army Directorate of Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, in a statement, said the troops of 119 Task Force Battalion of 7 Brigade on Operation Lafiya uncovered the graves of the Boko Haram terrorists.

Usman said the “shallow graves” contained corpses of terrorists that died after they escaped with gun wounds during an encounter with Nigerian troops on January 13.

“The troops have continued their patrols by dominating the general area of Baga, Kangarwa and Dogonchikun with a view to intercepting fleeing Boko Haram terrorists,” he said.
