He said: “Two women and six children were rescued on Monday from the Boko Haram Terrorists by troops of 121 Battalion in conjunction with hunters in an ambush operation against some fleeing members of the terrorists’ group at Gwadala village in the North Eastern part of Borno State.

“During the operations, contact was made with the criminals at Gwadala village axis. Our  troops neutralised one of the terrorists, others escaped with gunshot injuries and the following items were  recovered:

“The projections for ambushes, clearance operations and fighting patrols are part of the efforts embarked upon by the dogged troops of 7 Division Nigerian Army to consolidate on the gains and successes recorded so far in the ongoing operation “Halaka Dodo” to ensure the remnants of the terrorists are exterminated with the aim of having a lasting  peace and security in the North East.

“Members of the public within the Theatre are therefore urged to cooperate with the Army and other security agencies by sharing credible and timely information to troops in their efforts to fighting terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria”.
