Troops of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in a dawn raid operation, on Saturday, cleared a terrorists’ camp in Buduram, north of Doron Baga, where terrorists were massing up and reorganizing to carry out a reprisal attack after being routed in Doron Baga in a previous encounter last Sunday.
DailyPost gathered that 17 terrorists died in the raid operation, while some who escaped into neighbouring islands in the Lake Chad Peninsula are still being pursued.
The Defence Headquarters made the disclosure on its website.
Meanwhile, calm has been restored in Doron Baga after the Sunday attack by terrorists, who infiltrated the community with some of them disguising as women in hijab.
Five of the terrorists died in the counter offensive to defend Doron Baga by troops of the MNJTF.
Many of the inhabitants of the community, who had fled into nearby bushes for safety are now returning.
