The troops of Operation Hadin Kai and the civilian joint task force have reportedly killed 47 insurgents in Borno state.

The combined troops, supported by the 21 army armoured brigade, Bama, invaded the camps of the insurgents in Gazuwa village in Bama LGA on Sunday.

The camps, which were renamed by the insurgents as “Gazuwa” (headquarters), housed Boko Haram fighters and their families from the Abubakar Shekau faction.

The troops reportedly engaged the insurgents in a gun duel that lasted hours, killing 47 of them.
