25 killed as soldiers clash with Boko Haram terrorists [Photos]

At least 25 suspected terrorists and two soldiers died on Monday when troops of the Special Forces Brigade in Borno State clashed with Boko Haram members at Chikingudu, a community in the Marte Local Government Area of the state.

SaharaReporters reports that a military signal on the skirmish indicated that about seven soldiers also sustained injuries.

A total of 25 AK-47 rifles, three anti-aircraft guns, three general purpose machine guns, two automatic grenade launchers (AGL), and two gun trucks, among other arms and ammunition were also recovered by troops.

The signal read, “Sequel to elements of 402SF Bde encounter with BHTs on 8 Mar 21, additional details indicated that SF troops cleared Missene (an abandoned village where BHTs {Boko Haram terrorists} assemble to attack Marte and Dikwa, etc.), Hausari and Chukun Gudu villages in Marte LGA.

“Troops made contact with the enemy 3km from Chukun Gudu as apparently a top Amir had his family and assets in Chukun Gudu. The SF troops engaged them stoutly. Casualties on troops are 2KIA and 7WIA.

“Enemy casualties are over 25 elements killed. Items recovered are over 25 x AK47 rifles, 5 x FN rifles, 3 x AA guns, 3 x GPMG, 2 Automatic Grenade Launchers (AGL), 2 x enemy gun trucks (originally NA vehicles) and one x CJTF Hilux vehicle, among others. Troops’ morale and fighting efficiency remain high.”

Despite repeated claims by the military high command that the Islamists have been defeated, hundreds of soldiers have been killed since January 2021.
