The Nigerian Army on Saturday said troops of the Joint Task Force, North-East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), killed three Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists and destroyed their market in Borno.

The spokesperson for the army, Onyema Nwachukwu, said the troops of 5 Brigade, Sector 3 while consolidating on their dogged push recorded a decisive victory against the terrorists on Friday.

He said that the troops while conducting clearance operations, code-named “Operation Dominance I,” came in contact with the insurgents at an illegal market operated by the terrorists in Gallo Malawari Village.

“In the fierce encounter, three BH/ISWAP terrorists were neutralised, while others, bowing to superior firepower retreated in disarray.
