On Tuesday, while conducting deep clearance operations inside a remote forest general area, troops of the Nigerian Army smoked out terrorists who were hibernating in Yadi Forest in Kaduna State.

This is in accordance with a statement made on Wednesday in Abuja by Maj.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Director of Army Public Relations.

According to him, the soldiers charged into a terrorist ambush and quickly returned fire, killing one as the rest dispersed.

He claims that during the interaction, the soldiers retrieved two Ak-47 rifles, six Ak-47 magazines, five 7.62mm special rounds, three hundred thirty-one rounds of 7.62mm x 54 PKT machine gun ammunition, and two links for PKT machine gun ammo.

Third motorcycles, two sets of power generators, two sets of desert camouflage suits, and two pairs of desert boots were among the other things found, according to Nwachukwu.

According to him, there are a number of other goods, such as leg and hand shackles used to secure abducted victims, nine baofeng radios with nine charges, a talisman vest, an international passport, two voter’s cards, and two national identity cards.

According to Nwachukwu, the terrorists’ encampment were set on fire by the soldiers when they discovered their thorough concealment along the riverbanks.

Furthermore, he reiterated that the military were determined to apprehend the fugitives in order to clear the forest of any remnants of the terrorists’ attacks and reestablish normalcy.

In his statement, he emphasized the importance of the public staying alert and reporting any suspicious behavior to the appropriate authorities. The United States must unite in its fight against terrorism, he added.
