The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Borno has said that its troops killed four suspected Boko Haram members, including experts in Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), in a gun battle yesterday in Maiduguri. JTF, in a statement yesterday, said the suspected Boko Haram men were killed in “sustained follow-up operations” conducted by the Task Force at Sabon Gere, Sabon Layin Gwange, Dala Sajeri, Biafra and Suleimanti areas of Maiduguri metropolis this week.

The task force also said: “Following the killing of Abdulkareem Ibrahim, a high profile Boko Haram commander, in a joint operation with Joint Task Force (JTF) Operation RESTORE ORDER, troops along Damboa-Biu road, on 2 December, 2012 and based on additional information made available to the JTF, sustained follow-up operations were successfully conducted by the Task Force at Sabon Gere, Sabon Layin Gwange, Dala Sajeri, Biafra and Suleimanti areas of Maiduguri metropolis between 3 – 5 December, 2012. “Consequently, four identified Boko Haram terrorists sub-commanders, including two experts in the manufacturing of Improvised Explosive Devices, were killed in a shoot-out with own troops.”

Musa also disclosed that two soldiers were wounded in the gun duel, adding that some arms, including five AK 47 rifles, one pistol, 11 AK 47 rifles’ empty magazines, one G3 rifle, 176 assorted ammunition, 24 quantity of assorted primed IEDs gas cylinders, 12 pieces of IEDs remote control switches, six assorted IEDs and incendiary materials/chemicals and 15 small primed IED cans were recovered. “All the recovered items are planned to be used by the terrorists for operation Black Christmas, aimed at disrupting peaceful conduct of the impending Christmas celebration in Borno State,” the JTF spokesman claimed.

While thanking residents for their understanding and cooperation, Lt. Col Musa appealed to the people to continue to give timely and credible information to the task force through the telephone numbers already provided by the task force.

  1. Since Boko Haram has continually opposed God by bombing churches and killing innocent people, the LORD himself will expose them for total destruction. But the Lord is not willing that any soul should perish. Members of Boko Haram must therefore have a rethink now and surrender to the lordship of Jesus Christ ,who is able to save as many that come to him.

  2. Nigerian Journalist and security agents should learn how to Zip their mouth up and stay away from Nigerian security report? because they are causing most of this problem.thats why America remains number 1 in the whole world.if you get into America’s net,your family member will never hear about you until ,they finish with you.

  3. Avoiding to open up or telling the Press about the source of the useful information that led to the successful operations is very important, for the security/protection of the people in those affected areas. Pls, stop endangering their lives. This Cowards might attack the residence again, thinking they leaked their positions to the JTF.

  4. NIGERIA JOURNALIST ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENT SOULS IN THE NORTHERN PART OF NIGERIA. THEY BETTER LEARN TO KEEP THEIR MOUTH SHUT UNTIL THIS CRISIS IS OVER.

  5. churhes and christians all over nigeria should pls protect themselves during this xmas period.Provide adequate security for your churches.Install cctv cameras and be very very watchfull during this period.Any abandoned car,move it away from your buildings,relocate the parking area from your church building,watch for any abandoned plastic bags or any kind of bags around your churches, and most importantly watch for strange faces in your churches.Goodluck.MERRY XMAS

  6. Anonymity is a sine qua non in reporting,the providers of the information that led to the killing of the Boko Haram commanders should be separated from the news so as to save their life’s from being killed by this group…Reporting entails that pls,especially when reporting on issues like this!!!

  8. We are always distracted in this country by business man in other countries selling heavy arms and ammunitions. They leave their own peaceful country to places like africa to secretly cause war by any means(boko haram, Mend, opc, massob) so that they can sell they weapons of mass distruction. It is high time we become smarter and move forward because africa is very powerful. They are distracting us(africa) so that we would not know they are stealing our resources(oil,diamond,gold, etc) . Eg us, iran, china, russia, britian, saudi arabia etc. Watch the movie war lord by nicholas cage.

  11. Good observation by Mike. We should be smart and not allow the western powers to cause disunity among us just for them to sell their weapons of mass destruction. GOD SAVE NIGERIA!!!

  12. Days of the Boko haram have been numbered.Just as Saul was arrested by the Angel on his way to massacre the children of God at Damascus beford the Angel Michael arrested him and striked him with blindness and so shall it happen to the Boko haram before and after the Christmas celebration in Jesus name,Amen

  18. Good job to the JTF, The Lord on your side victory is sure. Let’s not condemn journalist because the news never disclosed any individual identity, but rather commending the residence for the work well done by cooperating with the force in giving reliable info. that led to their victory which anybody can do. Note, Boko Haram has been a terror to everybody, so the best way to fight them is by providing useful info. to the appropriate quarters and this must be done in a well classified and coordinated manner.
