DR Congo Soldiers Kill 3 ADF Rebels In Oicha

The ADF rebels have been wreaking havoc across different parts of DR Congo, especially in North Kivu.

Three members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) were killed on Thursday, Oct.  28, by soldiers of the Democratic Republic of Congo national army, FARDC, during clashes that occurred between Baiti and Ngubo villages to the northwest of Oicha, Beni territory in North Kivu.

Captain Anthony Mwalushayi, the spokesperson of army Operations Sokola 1, said two AK-47 rifles were recovered from the rebels, noting that the clashes with the assailants started before midday on Thursday and lasted for several hours.

The attack came on the heels of the presentation of the 12 ADF fighters on Sunday, Oct. 24,  including the wife of Amigo Kibirige, one of the leaders of the ADF terrorist movement.
