Chief of army staff lauds troop of Operation Lafiya Dole

On Sunday, 25th April, 2021, troop of Operation Lafiya Dole deployed in Mainok, Borno State, were attacked by Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists mounted on unconfirmed number of trucks. The terrorists were held by the gallant troop until the arrival of reinforcement team from 7 Division, Special Army Super Camp, Ngamdu and Army Super Camp 4, Benesheik.



During the fire fight that lasted hours, the gallant troop tactically lured a number of the terrorists into a killing zone within their camp where the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole scrambled Alpha jets and helicopter gunship took turns in decimating the trapped terrorists.

In aftermath of the encounter, the Boko Haram terrorists were neutralized and their gun trucks destroyed.

However, one gallant Officer and six soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice while five other soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries. Currently, troops are in fall control of Mainok.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru has applauded the troops for their resilience and commitment to defeating Boko Haram.
