Troops of Operation Hadin Kai have reportedly killed 14 Boko Haram fighters including Abu Hassan, a Commander (Munzir), of the Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād.
The troops wiped out the terrorists in an encounter at the axis Mafa, Borno State.
It was gathered that the terrorists were killed after a gunner in the troops’ patrol convoy opened fire on the fleeing terrorist’s position with an Anti-Aircraft gun which resulted in the neutralising of 14 terrorists.

“Someone fired at us while we are withdrawing from the battle field in Ngowom. We are on our way with the corpses. We are coming to Gaizuwa.
“Abu Hassan has slept (dead), Some of our fighters were also wounded, we may need emergency medical interventions. Please be on standby,” he said.
