Troops Triumph Over Terrorists with Major Victories Achieved in Kaduna, Zamfara, Abia States


In a series of decisive operations, Nigerian Army troops have dealt significant blows to terrorist groups in Kaduna, Zamfara, and Abia states, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to national security and citizen safety.

In Kaduna State, a two-day fighting patrol was conducted in Kajuru and Kachia Local Government Areas, resulting in the engagement and neutralization of five terrorists in a fierce combat at Dantarau. The troops recovered a cache of arms and ammunition, including two AK-47 rifles, one fabricated submachine gun (SMG), nine AK-47 magazines, 250 rounds of 7.62mm (special) ammunition, two motorcycles, and two handheld radios. This victory significantly disrupted terrorists’ activities along the Maro-Enugu community axis, bolstering security in the general area.

In Zamfara State, troops deployed along the Gusau-Tsafe-Funtua road responded to a distress call and successfully thwarted a kidnap attempt in the Angwan Chida area of Tsafe Local Government Area. During the rescue operation, troops engaged the terrorists in a fierce shootout, neutralizing two terrorists and rescuing four passengers. The operation resulted in the recovery of two AK-47 rifles, three magazines, 31 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition, one motorcycle, and the vehicle involved in the attempted abduction.

In Abia State, troops conducted a successful raid operation on an identified IPOB/ESN enclave located in Igboro Forest, Arochukwu Local Government Area. Despite encountering three improvised explosive devices (IEDs) planted by the terrorists, troops successfully recovered three locally fabricated Rocket-Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and a locally fabricated Artillery Gun. The terrorists were forced to flee, succumbing to the superior firepower of the troops. One soldier who sustained a minor injury from shrapnel is receiving medical attention and recuperating. The destruction of this camp represents a significant blow to the terrorist elements operating in the area.

These successful operations underscore the Nigerian Army’s unwavering dedication to combating terrorists’ activities. The effective raids and fighting patrols have not only disrupted the activities of the terrorists but also restored a sense of security and confidence among the affected communities. The Nigerian Army remains committed to ensuring the safety and security of its citizens and continues to make substantial progress in the fight against terrorism.
