The Nigerian military reported that they killed 188 terrorists and arrested 330 criminals in operations across the north last week.

Additionally, troops rescued 133 kidnapped individuals during this time. The Director of Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen Edward Buba, disclosed this information in a statement on Friday, April 12, 2024.

He mentioned that these recent successes have positioned the troops well to win the fight against terrorists.

The statement reads: “The armed forces are working decisively to kill the terrorists, stop insecurity, and ensure the safety of citizens. Accordingly, we are making the terrorists pay a much heavier price than we have been forced to pay.

“Troops will continue to operate with tremendous force against terrorists across the country. During the week under review, troops neutralised 188 and arrested 330 persons. Troops also rescued 133 kidnapped hostages.

“The military is in a good and strong position in the war against terrorists with many terrorist leaders killed. We will continue to provide security for citizens with the tools at our disposal.”
