Troops of 26 Brigade Garrison on patrol and escort duties of civilian merchants and commuters along Wala village and adjoining communities in Borno on Saturday had a fierce encounter with desperate and hungry Boko Haram terrorists’, who had laid an ambush, ready to pounce on food and other essentials.

Some suspected Boko Haram insurgents have attempted to infiltrate into Damaturu, the Yobe State capital but were repelled by security forces.

The Commissioner of Police in Yobe, Mr Yahaya Abubakar, confirmed this explaining that the attack was averted following intelligence gathered about the suspicious movement of the insurgents ahead of the incident.

Abubakar stated that a joint team of security operatives from the Police Command and troops of the Nigerian Army supported by two fighter jets stormed the area early enough, leading to the feat recorded adding that there was no casualty on the side of the security operatives.

The police commissioner said, “We were told of their movement from Mafa community in Borno State.

“The security personnel – both military and police; we mobilised ourselves and have successfully repelled the attack. Everywhere is calm now.”
