The Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) has eliminated scores of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists and impounded large quantities of their logistic supplies in Kirawa, on the Nigeria and Cameroon borders.
Col. Muhammad Dole, the Chief of Military Public Information for MNJTF, in a statement on Monday in N’Djamena Chad, said the operation was conducted by the troops of sector 1 Cameroon.
Dole reported that the troops conducted the operation in the Vretet-Zamga-Ngoshe triangle, where several Boko Haram/ISWAP insurgents were neutralized, while many fled with gunshot wounds.
According to him, a large number of materials and assorted foodstuff were recovered during the operation.
He said items recovered include one AK47 rifle and Magazine, 21 bicycles, 01 BHT uniform, several ammunition of the 7.62 MM special variant, 39 bags of millet, and two bags of beans.
Dole said that an intelligence analysis indicated that the items were being smuggled from the borders to Sambisa forest.
“It’s believed the terrorists are stockpiling materials for the incoming month of Ramadan,” Dole said.
“Further exploitation of the engagement areas showed traces of blood, evidence of Boko Haram/ISWAP criminals removing corpses of their dead colleagues while two corpses of Boko Haram criminals were discovered,” he stated.
