On Sunday, June 20, troops of Joint Task Force North East Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) stationed at the Forward Operational Base (FOB) of 152 Battalion, Kumshe in Borno State repelled a Boko Haram terrorist attack.

 

Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director Army Public Relations, 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 immediate 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.
