Troops of the Nigerian Army invaded a Boko Haram/Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) stronghold in Borno State and recovered gun trucks and other armaments.

The Nigerian Army in its official X handle (formerly Twitter) said the operation was part of Operation Desert Sanity III, involving a combination of artillery and air bombardments, as well as ground battle along Ngumne, Kawaran, and Mangu Axis in the Sambisa Forest and Timbuktu Triangle.

Despite facing threats of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and resistance from the terrorists, the Nigerian Army said thr troops engaged the terrorists with heavy firepower and rooted them out from their stronghold.

Vital armaments and other equipment, including two gun trucks, a 105mm Pack Howitzer, two exploded Improvised Explosive Device cases, and a burnt Rocket-Propelled Grenade tube were recovered by troops after the operation before subsequently destroying the enclave.

“This audacious operation demonstrates Nigerian Army’s commitment to eradicating terrorism and ensuring the safety and security of the region.

“The recovery of heavy artillery and Gun trucks marks a significant setback for the terrorists,” the Army stated.
