The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said it destroyed new camps being used by Boko Haram and Islamic State West African Province terrorists in Kajeri, Borno State, rescuing two women and three children.
According to the Army, troops of the 112 Task Force Battalion on clearance operations killed “more members of the crouching Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists on Tuesday when they raided a cluster of established camps along Kajeri village in the state.”
Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sagir Musa, said in a statement they recovered two guns, eight cartridges, two torches and one bicycle from the hoodlums.
Musa said, “Furthermore, two women and three children suspected to have been kidnapped by the terrorists were rescued by troops around the bushes of Kajeri and Saleri villages. The rescued women and children will be handed over to the appropriate agency for further action.
“The camps were destroyed and burnt by the troops, while they advanced further and cleared the surrounding localities in the general area of Kajeri and Saleri areas of the state.”
