The Nigerian Army has said that troops deployed for counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations in the North West on Saturday, April 13, successfully ambushed and neutralised two terrorists transiting with arms in Kaduna State.

Director of Army Public Relations, Maj.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu disclosed this in a Sunday statement obtained by The Herald.

He said the operation which took place in Rafin Sariki Village of Giwa Local Government Area was a prompt response to actionable intelligence on the presence of terrorists transiting with a sack containing weapons.

“The troops laid in ambush for the terrorists and engaged them in a gun battle, that neutralised two of the terrorists.

“The gallant troops also recovered one AK-47 rifle, 52 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition, and one locally fabricated revolver frame,” the Army spokesman said.

Nwachukwu stated that the Nigerian Army remains committed to ensuring the safety  and security of the citizenry and the nation in general, and thus continue to take decisive actions against terrorists activities in the region.
