Troops of Sector 2 Joint Task Force, North East(NE), Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) have again inflicted casualty on Boko Haram(BH) and Islamic State's West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists in a fierce battle that ensued in  Buni Yadi in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.

The terrorists who frantically  attempted to gain access into Buni Yadi on Tuesday, mounted on gun trucks, met stiff resistance from troops of 27 Task Force Brigade and Nigerian Army Special Forces School.

The troops were supported in the repelling attack by Nigerian Air Force Component and personnel of the Nigerian Police, who gallantly fought and overwhelmed the terrorists with superior firepower. 

Brigadier General Onyema  Nwachukwu, Director Army Public Relations, said the ferrocious battle forced the criminals to  withdraw in different directions, having suffered heavy losses. 

Nwachukwu added that several gun trucks with their occupants were taken out by the troops while preliminary battle damage assessment revealed the precision with which Air and Land troops engaged the terrorists destroying their gun trucks. 

According to the army Spokesman, engagement is still ongoing by troops to  take out fleeing remnants of the terrorists.

Commending troops for this operational exploit, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya charged them to sustain the current operational tempo to deny the criminals freedom of action.
