Troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole have killed 75 Boko Haram terrorists and recovered weapons in the northeast.
The Coordinator Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche, confirmed this in a statement issued on Sunday.
According to him, the terrorists were killed in an ongoing offensive in the region that resulted in casualties on Boko Haram fighters and equipment.
Enenche noted that the Boko Haram fighters met their death during 17 separate encounters with the troops from June 1 to June 30, 2020.
He, however, regretted that during the period, one of their officers was killed and another injured in the process with 35 people rescued.
Amongst those rescued are 18 women, 16 children and one adult male.
