The Nigerian Army said Boko Haram terrorists fleeing the onslaught by troops met their Waterloo in attempt to enter Gombi town, Gombi Local Government Area of Adamawa, on Monday evening.

This is contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja by Col. Sani Usman, Acting Director of Army Public Relations, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Usman said the insurgents were engaged by troops of 23 Brigades of the Nigerian Army in a gun battle that led to the killing of quite a number of them.

He said the operation also led to destruction and recovery of vehicles, motorcycles, various calibre of weapons and ammunition.

He listed the weapons destroyed and recovered to include four Hilux vehicles, three Anti-Aircraft guns and one 50-  inch Browning machine gun.

“Others include: 5,000 rounds of 12.7 millimeter ammunition; two boxes of .50 inch ammunition; 1,000 rounds of Light Machine Gun ammunition; one Rocket Propelled Grenade 7 tube, as well as one General Purpose Machine Gun.

Unfortunately, one soldier was wounded in the encounter and he is responding to treatment,” Usman said.

He added that troops were mopping up the area to prevent further incursions by the terrorists.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Few comments from critics because they’re doing well, but if it was one of Boko Haram madness, many more will come here bashing GEJ and insulting the army. Na wa

    we of the above captioned organization appreciate the army effort in their combat but forces can never resolve it except a fundamental dialogue as bilateral within and with the peoples in the region and before we can appreciate [ Mr president gej ] must as matter of exigency give the people of nigeria that elect him to office the total audit of the security vote ? and there must be an independent medial report of the army activities on the battle field not the army spoke person of general kolade as its an abuse under the humanitarians laws of UN charter and Geneva convention of 1949
