Operation Tura Takai Bango in close collaboration with the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole, has neutralised and decimated unconfirmed number of Boko Haram terrorists and destroyed 7 Boko Haram/ISWAP gun trucks, when they attempted to attack their location at the outskirts of Marte, headquarters of Marte Local Government Area of Borno State.
Troops, based on reliable information about the attack, positioned themselves in an ambush site where they tactically withdrew to, and awaited the arrival of the terrorists before they opened fire which led to a fierce gun battle that resulted in the successes achieved.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Acting Director, Defence Media Operations, Brig.Gen.Bernard Onyeuko.
He hinted that the troops are still engaged in pursuit of the fleeing terrorists for further exploits.
