Security forces conducting cordon and search for remnants of the daring terrorists who attacked Giwa Barracks in Maiduguri yesterday, had an encounter with some of the surviving terrorists in the general area of Kayamla and Alu Dam in the outskirts of Maiduguri..
According to the army, the captured terrorists are providing useful information towards the discovery of other hideouts of the daring terrorists.
The terrorists’ relaunch of attack on the army formation has confirmed earlier insinuations by military sources that the terrorists were desperate to either free or kill the ones being detained, with a view to avenging or preventing further revelations about their operations and hideouts as this has been frustrating their plans lately.
More bodies of fleeing terrorists have been discovered along the routes of their escape. Troops morale and fighting spirit have been further boosted by the outcome of the operations so far.
Meanwhile, cordon and search as well as patrols and pursuit by air and land is continuing in the entire mission area of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States.
