Military authorities have disclosed that troops
in Operation Lafiya Dole have recorded tremendous progress in the
ongoing Operation Deep Punch 2 in the various sectors, killing 107 Boko
Haram terrorists in the process. The troops, however, lost three
soldiers and one civilian to the armed bandits. 
A statement issued on Tuesday by Director of Army Public Relations,
Brigadier General Sani Usman indicated that so far, the troops have
neutralised over 50 Boko Haram terrorists, destroyed and captured high
calibre arms and ammunition, especially in the Lake Chad general area.
According to the Army Spokesman, troops on Monday 8th January 2018,
cleared Boko Haram terrorists in Metele village, Tumbun Gini and Tumbun
“During the clearance operations, Boko Haram terrorists abandoned the
area in disarray leaving behind livestock, large quantity of foodstuff,
motorcycles and donkeys.
“Also in Metele, however, the terrorists attempted to attack troops
in harbour, but this was stiffly resisted with heavy casualty on Boko
Haram terrorists. Troops neutralised over 57 of them, destroyed gun
trucks and other equipment.”
Usman further disclosed that the gallant troops also discovered
terrorists’ logistics base at Tumbu Ndjamena, which held stocks of fish,
foodstuffs, fuel and motorcycles that were promptly destroyed.
