The troops of the operation Whirl Stroke from 6 Brigade/Sector 3 have reportedly destroyed terrorist hideouts in Taraba State communities.

This was as they recovered good numbers of weapons and ammunition in the operation, some of which are situated in the communities of Rugga, Sarti, and Yade.

In a written statement made available to reporters in Jalingo, the state capital on Sunday, Major General Oyenmma Nwachuku, the Director of Army Public Relations, declared that the army is committed to eliminating terrorist bases located in isolated regions of the state.

“During an aggressive patrol conducted by the troops of 93 Battalion Sub-Sector 3B OPWS, contact was made with terrorists who fled their base in the face of the troops’ overwhelming firepower.

“A thorough search of the terrorists’ hideout resulted in the seizure of 1 AK-47 rifle, a magazine containing 7 rounds of 7.6mm X39mm ball ammunition and 1 cartridge.

“These successful military operations exemplify the Nigerian Army’s unwavering commitment to decisively combat all forms of criminal activities, reassuring the public of their safety and security as the farming season approaches in the state,” the statement reads.
