The Nigerian Army troops of Operation Hadin Kai in collaboration with hybrid forces of the Civilian Joint Task Force have killed a top commander of Boko Haram terrorists, Abu Illiya and 31 other terrorists in the Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

According to Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert, the terrorists were killed during intelligence-led aggressive fighting patrols in Boko Haram hideouts in Kayamari, Habasha, and Yuwe villages, revealing that troops made contact with the terrorists during a counter-offensive patrol in Yuwe, resulting in a heavy gun battle.

It was also revealed that some Boko Haram terrorists reportedly fled in disarray as a result of the soldiers' superior firepower.

The terrorists abandoned their properties and weapons with at least 50 bicycles recovered during the raid.

The army also revealed this via their verified Twitter page on Sunday afternoon, describing the development as an additional victory over the terrorists.

“…during a successful ambush operation in the early hours of Saturday 28 January 2023, around Yuwe village in Konduga LGA of Borno state.

“The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya has commended troops for their professionalism, tenacious commitment and fighting spirit in prosecuting the war against terrorism and insurgency in North Eastern Nigeria,” the army tweeted.
