The Nigerian Army has said that no fewer than 188 terrorists were killed and 330 arrested during operations conducted across the northern parts of the country in the last one week.

Also, a total of 133 kidnapped persons were rescued by troops deployed across the country within the period under review.

The Director, Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen Edward Buba, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

He noted that the recent achievements of the troops had placed them in a strong position to win the ongoing war 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.”
