Military destroy Boko Haram armoured personal carrier, kill militants


Below is a statement from the Nigerian Military…
Troops in pursuit of terrorists had an encounter with a group of them at Muva Junction yesterday. The fierce encounter resulted in substantial casualties including loss of lives & equipment on both sides. An armoured Personnel Carrier used by the terrorists was destroyed in the fight, while General Purpose Machine Gun, Rocket Propelled Grenades, rifles,IEDs, & ammunitions as well as, bows, arrows, locally made pistols & guns captured from them have been taken into custody.

Meanwhile, troops have continued their advance backed with highly coordinated air strikes against the terrorists. Communities & locations such as Garkida, Vimtim, Kumare-Uba, Mararaba, Mubi, & others are also under regular patrols & surveillance to secure them against any resurgence of terrorist activities.


  1. I’m pained over the loss of lives amongst Nigerian military. Gallant soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice for their fatherland. I pray for the repose of their souls. Nigeria will never forget you. I pray that God will protect and provide for the families left behind. I have no doubt that Boko Haram will be wiped out from existence soon. Kudos to Nigerian military! You have won back your pride.
