An attack by Boko Haram terrorists on Sunday June 20, was foiled by troops of Joint Task Force North East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) deployed at the Forward Operational Base (FOB) of 152 Battalion, Kumshe in Borno State. 

 

Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu said the insurgents tried to infiltrate the camp on four gun trucks and several motorcycles through the northern part of the troops’ deployment but were met with fierce fire by the highly alert troops, resulting in the instant killing of six terrorists.

 

Nwachukwu said the troops who remained dogged and sustained heavy gunfire on the terrorists during the encounter, routed and forced the terrorists to flee in total disarray, leading to the capture of six AK 47 Rifles, one handheld grenade, assorted drugs and other first aid items.
