Operation HADIN KADIN has thus far been effective in the fight against terrorists around the nation as troops of sector one successfully neutralised the Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa Province terrorists.
The army overpowered BokoHaram, and ISWAP fighters in an ambush staged at one of their notorious crossing points and hideouts along the Kwadal-Agapalwa- Amuda axis in the Northern part of Nigeria.
According to Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Army spokesperson, who was on a long-range fighting Patrol towards Agapalwa and Amuda villages, got a clue that the Islamic extremists were operating close by and quickly set up an ambush.
