You act to orders as it is given. I do think at times maybe you were created differently. But now you left without saying you leaving. Rest on bro."
Here is a statement by Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu, the Deputy Director Public Relations, Theatre Command Operation Lafiya Dole about the incident.
Troops of 233 Battalion deployed in Operation Lafiya Dole have killed scores of Boko Haram insurgents while countering an ambush staged by elements of Boko Haram Insurgents along Sasawa Road in Babbangida Local Government Area of Yobe state. The troops encountered the ambush today at about 12.30 noon, during a fighting patrol to clear the general area of fleeing elements of Boko Haram insurgents who have been on rampage for food and logistics.
The gallant troops overpowered and neutralized the insurgents in the fire fight that ensued and successfully extricated themselves from the ambush.
Information have so far confirmed that the insurgents whose original mission was to attack and loot the near by Babangida market for food and other logistics, aborted the mission to stage the ambush on getting wind of the troops patrol. Sadly, while fighting through the ambush, the troops recorded some casualties.
The situation has been brought under firm control by troops of Operation Lafiya Dole and additional troops have been drafted to the area to reinforce the patrol troops, while the Air Task Force is on aerial surveillance of the area to track down fleeing insurgent survivors .
The good people of Babangida Local Government Area and Yobe state in general are urged not to panic but to remain calm and steadfast.
Please disseminate this information to the general public through your news medium.
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
