In a significant development in the ongoing battle against terrorism, troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) successfully confronted and subdued a group of Boko Haram terrorists during a recent operation in the Mobbar Local Government Area of Borno State. The operation, conducted by the valiant troops of Sector 3 (5 Brigade) Nigeria on February 25, 2024, not only resulted in the terrorists fleeing but also led to the recovery of a cache of arms and ammunition, marking a significant blow to the insurgency in the region.

The operation was initiated based on intelligence reports indicating the presence of Boko Haram terrorists in the vicinity of Alayi Bulanti, within the Mobbar council of Borno State. Deployed from their base in Damasak, the troops undertook a fighting patrol that brought them into contact with the terrorist elements.

Upon contact, the troops engaged the threat with superior firepower, effectively subduing the insurgents. The decisive action of the troops resulted in the recovery of terrorists’ weaponry, including two AK 47 rifles, five magazines, and a total of 73 rounds of 7.62mm Special Ammunition. This seizure not only deprives the terrorists of valuable resources but also serves as a deterrent to their future activities.

The successful outcome of this operation underscores the unwavering commitment of the MNJTF to neutralize the threat of terrorism in the Lake Chad Basin region. Maj Gen Ibrahim Ali, the Force Commander, congratulated the troops of Sector 3 for their bravery and urged them to remain resolute in their mission to clear the area of terrorist elements.

It is important to acknowledge the crucial role played by the local communities in providing support to the security forces. Their continued cooperation and vigilance are essential in the fight against terrorism.

This operation is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the MNJTF in safeguarding the lives and property of the citizens and securing the region from the menace of terrorism. It also serves as a reminder that the fight against terrorism requires a coordinated and sustained effort, involving the military, law enforcement agencies, and the local community.

In conclusion, the successful outcome of this operation is a significant milestone in the ongoing battle against terrorism in Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin region. It demonstrates the commitment of the MNJTF to rid the region of terrorist elements and restore peace and stability to the affected areas.
