The Nigerian Army, in a statement signed by Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman said troops of the 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade of Operation LAFIYA DOLE have succeeded in bursting a secret Boko Haram Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) making device factory in Ngala town, in North Eastern Nigeria.
Despite their recent defeats, the terrorists have continued to attack innocent citizens, military and soft targets through vehicular and human borne Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). Despite ongoing clearance of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists, they persistently hid the IED manufacturing factories location.
The Nigerian Army reports that as a result of the efficient intelligence and resilience of the troops one of such factories in Ngala town was attacked and destroyed, and some of the Boko Haram terrorists killed in the process.
In addition, they recovered 20 gas cylinders of various sizes prepared and ready for explosive insertion, primers, gun powder, electric wires and tape recorders, amongst other items.
According to Usman, “It is heart-warming to inform the public that troops in various parts of the theatre of operation LAFIYA DOLE are doing well and their morale remain very high.”
