Two Boko Haram commanders were shot dead in an operation launched by a combined special security force in Mubi area of northeast Nigeria’s Adamawa State, the military said on Tuesday.

Military Commander in charge of operations Lt. Col. Beyidi Martins told reporters that the Boko Haram commanders,identified as Abubakar Zakaria Ya’u and Mohammed Bama,were killed in an operation launched to contain activities of the sect and other miscreants terrorizing the state.

He said the operation was successfully carried out, following collective efforts by all security operatives in the state.According to him, six suspects were also arrested while four escaped with injuries. “Four Russian made AK47, 500 live ammunition and a large amount of money were recovered from the suspects,” the military officer added.

Adamawa State, located in Nigeria’s
northeast region, has frequently witnessed attacks perpetrated by Boko Haram since 2009, when the sect launched its insurgency targeting
churches, security facilities, schools and villages.

In May, Nigeria’s President Goodluck
Jonathan declared a state of emergency
in Adamawa and its geographical neighbors, Borno and Yobe.

    I truly hope the C.O.A.S . at a private ceremony that is classy honors these warriors with the reward money and also A SPECIAL COMMENDATION i.e. medals and a subsequent promotion.
    Yesterday I talked about the sheer desperation of these b—–s that would compel such degenerates to attack A MOSQUE where people are praying. I also said that there really is no let up.
    Lastly when I got home still disturbed by this incident I prayed, it is now apparent that one of those prayers was answered
    God bless NIGERIA
    God comfort the families of those who lost loved ones
    Amen.

    All Nigerains can now see BH were not against any part of the country-North,East,West or South but against the very existence of our Nationhood driven by fanaticsm,dangerous idealogy and evil intention.
    Moslems, Christian,Freethinkers and African religion believers must unite to wipe out their goals ans aspiration.
    May the souls of all that have passed on through their evil acts find peace in the bolssom of the Almighty.
