Operation Hadin Kai: Troops Neutralize 2 Insurgents In Babbangida, Recover Weapons


The Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu says Troops of Sector 2 Joint Task Force North East, Operation Hadin Kai have neutralised two Islamic State of West Africa Province/ Boko Haram insurgents during a counter-attack.

He said the troops responded to insurgents’ infiltration attempt into Babangida community in Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State, on Sunday 26 September 2021.

“Owing to the logistics blockade imposed on the insurgents, the criminals now desperately indulge in pillaging activities to replenish their dwindling logistics. The insurgents made futile efforts to infiltrate and pillage the community, but were met with a fierce counter attack by the vigilant troops, forcing them to withdraw in disarray, leaving traces of blood littering their route as they fled”.

“Aside from inflicting casualty on the insurgents, the gallant troops also captured one BHT/ISWAP Heckler and Koch 21 Guns, Three AK 47 rifle magazines, 213 links of 7.62mm (NATO) and two grenades. Further exploitation by the troops is still ongoing”.

“The troops have been commended by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya for their doggedness in expeditiously conducting the counter-attack.

They are also encouraged to continue to avail troops with actionable information that would enhance the execution of ongoing Counter Terrorism and Counter Insurgency operations in the region”.
