Army Repels Boko Haram Attack In Borno Community
The Nigerian Army inflicted heavy casualty on Boko Haram insurgents when they attempted attack on the military location in Katarko community in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The army spokesman, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu in a statement on Thursday said the troops immediately swung into action following a tip off and pushed the terrorists backward with superior fire power.
He, however, said some of the terrorists escaped into nearby bushes but efforts were on to get them, adding that the troops were currently embarking on clearance patrol in the area.
Chukwu urged Yobe residents in general and Katarko in particular, to go about their legitimate businesses and report any suspicious activities or movement in their area to the law enforcement agents for prompt action.
