Boko Haram Terrorists kill 2 Soldiers In Borno
Two soldiers serving in the 119 Task Force Battalion, Kangarwa, Borno State, were killed by Boko Haram fighters on Tuesday morning.
Seven soldiers were also injured in a clash with the terrorists.
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Sani Usman, disclosed these on Wednesday.
“The attack which started at about 6:30pm was successfully repelled after about three hours of exchange of heavy gunfire that inflicted tremendous casualty on the terrorists. Unfortunately, two of our gallant soldiers paid the supreme price, while seven were wounded in action.
“Due to poor visibility, the number of terrorists killed could not be ascertained for now. However, the bodies of the gallant soldiers and those wounded in action are being evacuated, while the unit is carrying out mop up operation. It should be noted that the successful repelling of the attack was made possible by support from the Nigerian and Chadian Air Force fighter jets,” Usman stated.
