Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters (DHQ) on Monday said that 56 terrorists were killed in a major offensive at Alafa Forest in Borno state at the week end.

The Director of Defence Information, Maj-Gen. Chris Olukolade said that Nigerian security forces launched ground and air operations on the terrorists’ locations in the Forest at Alafa about 21 km from Bama in Borno.

“Over 56 terrorists died in the ensuing intensive fight over the weekend. Two soldiers were wounded in the operation which was meant to track fleeing terrorists.

“The DHQ is acting on intelligence reports which indicated renewed efforts by the terrorists to establish a new camp in the forests locations,’’ he said in a statement issued in Abuja today.

The statement said that the land and air operations had inflicted heavy casualty on the insurgents as indicated by the high level of their loss of men and materials.

It said the Air and land bombardments were continuing in different locations where terrorists had been reportedly sighted.

The statement also said that troops of the Multi-National Joint Task Force had foiled an attempt by terrorists who were massing up on an island on Lake Chad.

According to the statement, the terrorists have the intentions to carrying out an attack on some Nigerian communities.

The statement said that seven of the terrorists died while others fleeing in different direction towards Niger and Chad Republic, were being trailed by the troops.

Intelligence reports had confirmed that some of the wounded terrorists were seen in a canoe paddling towards Tumbun Telkandam in Chad Republic, it said
