Troops of Operation Hadin Kai, in the North East, have reportedly killed three Boko Haram terrorists in an ambush, in the early hours of Tuesday.
Newsbreak gathered that the troops in collaboration with the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) carried out the operation in the axis of Gubio Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno state.
The eliminated insurgents were said to have been terrorising herdsmen and stealing their animals.
Following the operation, the security agents recovered two AK 47 rifles, one bow, an arrow, two AK 47 magazines, one motorcycle, and other items.
Thousands of Boko Haram fighters and families have surrendered over the last year, fleeing government bombardments and infighting with the rival Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).
The conflict has killed more than 40,000 people and displaced 2.2 million more since 2009.
