Troops rescue 1,623 persons, clear terrorists out of Jarawa

Troops of 3 Battalion, 22 Brigade Nigerian Army on Operation Lafiya Dole, assisted by 10 Civilian JTF based on information received, on Monday embarked on an offensive on suspected location of Boko Haram terrorists at Jarawa general area, Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

While advancing, the troops came under heavy fire at Jarawa village.

The troops responded decisively and went further to clear Deima, Artano, Saduguma, Duve, Bardo, Kala, Bok, Msherde and Ahirde settlements.

During the operation, the troops neutralized 21 Boko Haram terrorists and rescued 1,623 residents of Jarawa who were held captives by the terrorists.

They also recovered three AK-47 rifles with registration numbers 565222414, 563729686 and UF 3646, a 36 Hand Grenade, 12 cutlasses and four motorcycles.

The rescued persons have been escorted to Rann Internally Displaced Persons camp, while all the children were vaccinated.

One significant aspect of this operation is that the unit noted for its experience in battle, resilience and bravery did not record any casualty.
