The troops of Operation Hadarain Daji, OPHD, in a series of coordinated clearance and offensive operations, have again descended on terrorists in Sokoto State.

According to the spokesman of OPHD task force, Captain Ibrahim Yahaya, the offensive clearance operation that took place on December 14, 2023, at Bauni village and Bauni forest led to a gun duel that lasted for several hours.

According to the statement: “Troops’ aggressiveness and firepower superiority forced the terrorists to abandon their hideouts and flee in disarray, leading to the rescue of six kidnapped victims.

“Three terrorists were neutralised and two AK-47 rifles were recovered, as well as 19 magazines, ammunition, two Dane guns, motorcycles, radios (walkie-talkies), and other items.

“All terrorist enclaves discovered and recovered motorcycles were destroyed instantly during the operation.”
