At the Kutila village, the troops came under heavy attack from the terrorists. The troops responded and dealt with the Boko Haram terrorists by neutralizing and routing them out of the area. Several others escaped into the thick forest with gun shot wounds. The troops recovered 1 Gun truck, 1 Canter vehicle and 1 pick up from the terrorists.
The gallant soldiers proceeded further to clear Bok, Misherde, Mika and Kutila also in Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State, where they liberated 455 persons held hostages by the terrorists.
The rescued persons after thorough screening have been moved to Rann Internally Displaced Persons camp.
