Troops of 7 Multinational Joint Task Force Brigade Quick Response Group (QRG) of the Nigerian Army stationed in Baga, Borno State, and 118 Task Force Battalion, also in Borno, yesterday laid an ambush along Daban Masara axis used by Boko Haram terrorists to convey logistics.

“One of the suspected wanted Boko Haram terrorist leaders, who is serial number 95 on the first Nigerian Army wanted list of 100 Boko Haram terrorist leaders, was fatally wounded in the exchange of fire. He later gave up while receiving medical attention at the base, while other members of his team escaped with gunshot wounds,” Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said.

“The troops recovered 7 Jerri cans of 30 litres containing 210 liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), motorcycles and food stuff in addition to arms and ammunitions,” Col. Usman said last night in a statement issued in Abuja.
