In what looked like a tactical operation, the Nigerian troops have eliminated 38 Boko Haram terrorists who attempted to attack a military base in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State on Sunday evening.

Five soldiers, however, were killed during the incident by the insurgents.

A top military intelligence officer told PRNigeria that the bodies of the terrorists were recovered during a mopping-up operation.

The source said: “I can confirm to you that the tactical joint operation involving the ground troops and the air component successfully eliminated scores of Boko Haram terrorists who attempted to attack a military post.

“While the ground troops fought them with superior weapons for more than two hours, fighter helicopters from the air tactical unit of the Nigerian Air force eliminated fleeing terrorists.

“So far, we have recovered gun trucks, RPG and other sophisticated weapons from the terrorists.”

Meanwhile, an earlier situation report (SITREP) sighted by PRNigeria, disclosed that 22 terrorists were killed by troops of 25 Task Force Brigade of the Nigerian Army, while the helicopters of the Nigerian Air Force provided air cover and medical evacuation for the troop.
