The Defence Headquarters has said that the Troops of Operation Hadin Kai, on Friday, killed six terrorists after an ambush along the Buratai-Buni Gari road, Borno.

DHQ spokesman Edward Buba announced this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

Mr Buba said while an army Lieutenant died in the ambush, four other personnel who sustained injuries in action were receiving treatment.

He, however, said the troops’ reinforcements pursued the terrorists to their hideout within the Timbuktu Triangle and killed six of them.

According to him, troops recovered five AK-47 rifles and 103 rounds of the 7.62mm special ammunition.

“The remaining terrorist ran in disarray, and the troops are in hunt of the remnant terrorist that fled the firefight,” he said.
