The Nigerian Army, says its troops on Saturday May 1, thwarted Boko Haram Terrorists’ attempt to infiltrate into Rann Town, the capital of Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State.

According to statement by the Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima: “ The terrorists in their numbers attempted to disrupt the peace that has been enjoyed by the border town but were met with stiff resistance as the troops in the area took them on a fierce fire fight which lasted about an hour”.

The statement obtained today, Monday May 3 from the twitter handle of Nigerian Army by Fresh Angle International, explained: “The terrorists withdrew in disarray with a large number of them suffering fatal injuries leaving behind several weapons and ammunition including anti-aircraft gun barrel, AK 47 rifle, hand held communication radio and different calibres of ammunition.

“In a related development, on 2 May 2021, another band of Boko Haram Terrorists on a criminal mission attacked Ajiri town of Konduga LGA of Borno State. The terrorists having reached part of the town initially burnt 9 houses and killed some innocent residents before they were engaged by the troops deployed in the area. The retreating terrorists went away with various degrees of gunshot injuries while the gallant troops are on their chase. Unfortunately however, 2 personnel paid the supreme price in the resulting encounter”.
