The director, Army Public Relations, Brig Gen Onyema Nwachukwu, said the terrorists mounted on four Gun Trucks and several motorcycles attempted to infiltrate and attack the camp through the northern part of the troops’ deployment.
He said the troops engaged the terrorista with fierce fire resulting in the instant killing of six Boko Haram Terrorists.
