5 terrorists are killed by the military while trying to cross into Nigeria from Cameroon

Five terrorists from Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) were killed by Nigerian troops participating in Operation Hadin Kai in the North East as they tried to enter Nigeria from Cameroon.

The Military High Command claims that 5 people were shot dead as a result of an intelligence report that they had set up an ambush along Bula Yobe-Darel Jamel in Borno State's Bama Local Government Area.

No fewer than 10 terrorists were reportedly caught alive, according to Maj.-Gen. ES Buba, the recently appointed Director of Defence Media Operations, who made this announcement at Defense Headquarters in Abuja.

Operations against terrorists, including their accomplices and providers of logistics, have continued to be ramped up by Operation Hadin Kai troops in the nation's northeast.

"To do this, military set up an ambush along Bula Yobe-Darel Jamel in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State on June 22, 2023, in response to an information from intelligence that terrorists were entering Nigeria from Cameroon.

"Following a firefight, troops neutralized 5 Boko Haram terrorists/Islamic State of West Africa Province terrorists and recovered 1 bag each of flour and detergent," the senior military officer added.

He also disclosed that 967 terrorists, including 82 adults, 354 adults, and 531 minors, had surrendered to the military at various points inside the joint area of operations.
