As per intelligence reports, three (3) among the said rebels are believed to be members of SRGU, SRMA-GU1 were wounded in action.


Said successful operation is due to the intensified stakeholders’ engagement of the Jungle Fighters as well as the active participation and support of Local Government Officials and residents in the area towards the advocacy of 2ID in sustaining peace and development within its area of responsibility.
