MNJTF troops eliminate terrorists and impound logistics supplies in Nigeria/Cameroon border
The Street Journal | In Kirawa, on the Nigerian-Cameroonian border, the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) has killed scores of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists and seized substantial quantities of their logistic supplies.
According to the Independent, the MNJTF's Chief of Military Public Information, Col. Muhammad Dole, claimed in a statement released on Monday, February 28, 2022, in N'Djamena, Chad, that the operation was carried out by forces from Sector 1 Cameroon.
According to Dole, the troops carried out the operation in the Vretet-Zamga-Ngoshe triangle, where numerous Boko Haram/ISWAP fighters were killed and many others fled with bullet wounds.
During the operation, he claimed, a considerable number of materials and various foodstuffs were recovered.
One AK47 rifle and magazine, multiple 7.62 MM special version ammunitions, 21 bicycles, one BHT uniform, 39 bags millet, and two bags of beans were among the items discovered, according to him.
According to him, intelligence research revealed that the products were being trafficked across the border into the Sambisa forest.
"Terrorists are said to be accumulating goods for the upcoming month of Ramadan. Further exploitation of the engagement areas revealed traces of blood, signs of Boko Haram/ISWAP criminals removing corpses of their deceased companions, and two Boko Haram criminal corpses," Col. Dole says.
MNJTF Force Commander Maj.-Gen. Abdul-Khalifah Ibrahim complimented the Sector 1 Commander and troops for their bravery and gallantry as they continued to execute special operations to confront the rebels, according to Dole.
The military commander also asked them to remain committed, bold, and unpredictable, as well as to continue to dominate the area in order to cut off Boko Haram/ISWAP militants from any logistical resupply, he said.
"General Ibrahim pledged that the MNJTF's HQs would make strenuous efforts to ensure that all sectors receive the equipment that had been recently awarded to them," he said.
