The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, says troops of Operation Lafiya Dole have uncovered battle trenches built by the Boko Haram terrorists in Isari community in the Gamboru Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State.

The military on Monday noted that the “well-constructed battle trenches” were discovered by the Army Super Camp 11 during its long-range clearance operations in Gulwa, Diime, Musiri, Wuri Bari, Mada, Sangaya, Jarawa, Mutu, Isari and Mudu villages in the Gamboru Ngala LGA.

The Defence Media Operations in a press statement also said some top Boko Haram members surrendered to troops and were undergoing profiling.

The DMO Coordinator, Maj Gen John Enenche, said, “As the military inches closer to the final defeat of insurgency in the North-East region, more Boko Haram surrender amidst sustained artillery bombardments and offensive onslaught against their enclaves and hideouts.

“Troops of Army Super Camp 11 Gamboru uncovered a Boko Haram criminals’ hideout with well-constructed battle trenches. The troops captured three of the bandits and recovered one AK-47 rifle.

“On May 29, a Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa Province fighter, Muhammadu Abubakar, also known as Babagana, surrendered to troops of 242 Battalion deployed at Charlie Six checkpoint in Mongono, Borno State.

“Preliminary interrogation revealed that the 19-year-old joined the group about a year ago at Shaharam and participated in the attack on Tumbun Shaje. Babagana called on his colleagues to surrender to the troops. Another Boko Haram fighter, Adamu Yahaya, surrendered to troops of the 242 Battalion.”
