By Matthew Atungwu

Troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) have killed six terrorists affiliated with Boko Haram and ISWAP during a counter-ambush in the Binduldul area of Borno State.

In a statement, Lt. Col. Abubakar Abdullahi, the military public information officer in N’djamena, Chad, said that the operation, which took place on October 20, 2023, demonstrated the MNJTF’s ongoing commitment to eliminating terrorist remnants in its areas of operations.

According to the statement, two courageous soldiers were also injured during the operation, but their conditions are stable and they are receiving medical attention.

Abdullahi said, “In a significant victory against terrorism, troops of Sector 3 under the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) successfully neutralized 6 terrorists in a daring counter ambush in Binduldul, Borno State, Nigeria. The operation carried out on 20 October 2023, shows the unwavering commitment of the MNJTF towards clearing remnants of terrorists in its areas of operation.

“During the operation, the troops recovered a substantial amount of arms, including 2 x PKT guns, 5 x AK 47 rifles, 3 x AK 47 Magazines, and 239 x rounds of ammunition of various calibers. This seizure has dealt a heavy blow to the terrorist network and significantly disrupted their activities in the area.

“Sadly, two brave soldiers sustained injuries during the operation but are in stable condition and are receiving medical attention. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their families, we wish them a speedy and full recovery.

“In a related development, on 17th October 2023, Bulama Bukar, a 23-year-old suspect, surrendered to troops in Gubio, Borno State. Bukar claimed to be a Commander of Boko Haram, located at Camp Tafkin Chadi in Gilima village of Abadam Local Government. His voluntary surrender was facilitated by the Borno State government effort.

“Upon surrendering, Bulama Bukar handed over one AK 47 Rifle, 5 x Magazines, 44 x 7.62-millimeter Special Ammunition, and one motorcycle, alongside other items. This surrender and the recovery of the cache of arms will undoubtedly motivate his other colleagues to lay down arms toward a more secure region.
