Army Saves The Day As BokoHaram Attack Yobe For The Second Time

The Nigerian army on Sunday, October 29 said it has repelled an attempted attack on Goniri village in Yobe on Saturday, October 28.
Spokesman of 3 Division with tactical headquarters in Damaturu Col. Kayode Ogunsanya confirmed this to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in the state capital. Ogunsanya, however, could not immediately give details of the operation.

A villager, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “The insurgents came in from the western flank of the village but were repelled by the soldiers. “The soldiers had been on red alert since the attack on Sasawa village last Tuesday, making them battle ready.

“It did not take long when we heard the soldiers chanting victory songs, indicating that they were successful over the insurgents.”

NAN reports that two attacks were recorded in less than a week after a long period of relative peace enjoyed across the state. Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported earlier that Nigerian soldiers in furtherance of their effort to defeat Boko Haram intercepted a terrorist bomb squad at Ngalle village, northern Borno State.

In a statement by Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman who is the director, army public relations on Sunday, October 29, he said the operation was carried out on Friday, October 27. He said one terrorist was killed in the operation while their weapons were recovered.
