It was another day of victory for our gallant soldiers in the battle field and defeat for Boko Haram as troops of the Nigerian Army accosted a gang of the insurgents at a border community in Borno state, shot and arrested one of most notorious leaders who has been on the list of ‘100-wanted terrorists’.

According to Army sources, a gang of Boko Haram were intercepted at a fishing community known as Daban-Masara in Kukawa area of Borno while trying to ferry over 200 litres of Petrol.

The insurgents, led by their arrested leader, who was labelled Number “95” on the ‘100 Wanted Terrorists’ list, attempted to resist the Troops of 7 Multinational Joint Task Force Brigade’s stationed in Baga and 118 Task Force Battalion, but were effectively overwhelmed.

Spokesman of the Nigeria Army, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, confirmed the development and said the troops “sprang an ambush along Daban Masara axis usually used by Boko Haram terrorists elements to convey logistics on Thursday.

“At the encounter, one of the suspected wanted Boko Haram terrorists leaders who is serial number 95 on the first Nigerian Army wanted list of 100 Boko Haram terrorists leaders, was fatally wounded in the exchange of fire.

“He later gave up while receiving medical attention at the base, while other members of his team escaped with gun shot wounds. The troops recovered 7 Jerri cans of 30 litres containing 210 liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), motorcycles and food stuff in addition to arms and ammunitions”.

It was gathered that the dead leader of the Boko Haram had been a major motivational sub-leader of the insurgents in that axis of Borno.
