Nigerian Troops Eliminate 35 Terrorists In Niger, Kebbi States, Foil Terrorists Attacks

Nigerian military troops have eliminated over 35 terrorists in Dutsen Argida and Magaman Daji communities in Niger State, Northcentral Nigeria.

Sources said that the terrorists had emerged from Birnin Gwari forest in Kaduna State and invaded the two communities located in Rijau Local Government Area (LGA) via Kontagora town and Kwimo village.

However, soldiers from a military base in Warari, a densely-populated town in Rijau, swiftly mobilized, for a response operation and succeeded in neutralizing some of the terrorists.

A military intelligence officer, who was involved in the operation, told PRNigeria that troops, with the support of armed vigilantes engaged the terrorists who invaded Dutsen Argida and Magaman Daji, in a convoy of motorcycles.

He said: “The swift intervention of troops prevented the terrorists from attacking the villagers. We foiled their mission and killed over 25 of them. Troops also pursued some terrorists who fled and recover their motorcycles”.

Meanwhile, over 10 terrorists were also killed by Nigerian Army troops in Zuru, Kebbi State, on Saturday.

The terrorists killed in Zuru, according to reliable intelligence operatives, were those fleeing the onslaught of troops in Dutsen Argida and Magaman Daji communities of Niger State, into Kebbi.

“They had escaped from Niger State via Kontagora and Ibeto town, using their motorcycles.

“But luck ran out of them when a battalion of troops, acting on credible intelligence, intercepted their movements and engaged them in a heavy gun battle.

“Over a dozen of them were killed, while the rest fled with gunshot injuries,” one of the operatives disclosed. By PRNigeria
