It said the successful operation was carried out by its troops of Operation Lafiya Dole, following credible intelligence it received on the activities of the insurgents at Hamdaga Makaranta town in Gwoza.
This was made known in a statement by Major General, John Enenche, Defence Spokesperson, on Monday.
“Troops also cleared nine identified isolated BHT/ISWAP structures and farmlands in the area,” Enenche noted.
“Furthermore, they successfully rescued seven kidnapped victims comprising two females and five children.

According to the Defence Spokesperson, the military high command had congratulated the force for their gallantry, dexterity and courage, urging them to intensify the onslaught against the criminal elements in the North-East.
