Troops of 81 Battalion and 251 Task Force Battalion decisively dealt with some Boko Haram terrorists on motorcycles at Komala and Musafanari area of the Sambisa Forest Tuesday night.
Several terrorists were killed and a few others fled with gunshot wounds after the ambush against the terrorists.
Recovered from the terrorists were one AK45 rifle with registration number 56-2614519, in addition to a magazine containing 9 rounds of 7.62mm (Special), 6 motorcycles, 2 bags of salt and other assorted food items as well as various Improvised Explosive Making Devices (IEDs).
