Boko Haram attacks Troops again few days after notifying Military of fresh attack
The Nigerian Army has revealed that troops foiled an attempt of the Boko Haram terrorists to infiltrate the 118 Battalion location at Arege in Abadam Local Government Area of Borno State.
Recall that few days after Metele attack in Borno, Boko Haram insurgents threatened another attack on the military base at Jiddari-Polo, Maiduguri (read here).
Luckily, the fresh attack was foiled and repelled by the Army and it was on another location at Arege in Abadam Local Government Area of Borno State.
The army said, “Boko Haram were completely routed by the troops, neutralizing many of them while others fled in disarray due to superior firepower. As a result, they hastily evacuated most of their corpses under the cover of darkness.”
However, the army discovered four corpses of the insurgents at dawn and also the following;
“1 x Anti Aircraft Gun, 4 x AK 47 rifles, 1 x Light Machine Gun, 100 x Anti Aircraft Rounds, 185 x Light Machine Gun Rounds, 4 x AK 47 magazine (54 x AK 47 rounds, 1 x MOWAG Propeller)”.
