Not less than 10 Boko Haram terrorists have been killed by troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Rann, the headquarters of Kala Balge LGA of Borno State.
The troops killed the terrorists during a fierce gun battle on Friday.
A statement by the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General, Mohammed Yerima on Saturday said the terrorists came in their numbers, mounted on gun trucks and attempted to infiltrate the main entrance to the town in Borno.
Yerima said that the troops countered the move and defeated the terrorists who abandoned their evil mission and ran away.
‘The troops chased the terrorist and ensured there was no further threat to the town in Borno and its residents.
”Troops successfully destroyed one of the gun trucks and recovered multiple weapons including one anti-aircraft gun, two machine guns and eight AK-47 rifles neutralising ten terrorists in the process,” he added.
