The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF), on Monday, said it has killed over 30 terrorists and recovered a fully-loaded gun truck.

They also recovered one AK-47 rifle, one anti-aircraft gun, and hundreds of assorted ammunition.

A gun truck bearing Cameroon Gendarmes logo loaded with fuel was captured and destroyed, and household items, including uniforms and 11 BH/ISWAP motorcycles, were seized and burnt.

Two water-pumping machines were also recovered, and the entire camp was burnt.

The terrorists abandoned their five-year-old child named Babagana. The child in good condition will be handed over to the relevant authority.Adegoke said.

Adegoke went ahead to reveal that the troops of MNJTF captured a high ranking BH/ ISWAP member named Musa Mani, aged 43 years, at Damasak and the suspect confessed to be running away due to the intensity of the operation, just as he is currently being profiled in line with International Humanitarian and Human Rights Law.

Similarly, troops of MNJTF (Cameroon) launched a simultaneous Amphibious and Land offensive in the BH/ ISWAP infested riverine community of Kirta Wulgo. Five BHTs/ISWAP terrorists were neutralised while others fled.

Seven troops from Chad and Niger suffered minor injuries and are being attended to at different military facilities,” he said.

He said the Force Commander MNJTF, Major General Abdul Khalifah Ibrahim, while paying tribute to the fallen hero, described the CJTF as courageous young men and women who have contributed immensely to the Counter Insurgency operations.
