Military Repel Attack On Gwoza, Kill Seven Terrorists
Gwoza was attacked and captured on August 7, 2014, by Boko Haram, but the military reclaimed it early this year. Yesterday’s repulsion and killings were disclosed in Maiduguri by the Media Coordinator of Operation Lafiya Dole, Col. Tukur Gusau, while briefing newsmen on the successes recorded in the ongoing fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the North East of the country.
His words: “Gentlemen of the press, in the early morning of Friday that is today, troops of the task force battalion and that of 112 Task Force Battalion in Mafa of Borno State have recorded tremendous successes against Boko Haram. The attack on Gwoza was repelled this morning with the killing of seven terrorists’ suspects.
“The troops were also able to recover arms and ammunitions, including 11 AK 47 rifles, a Toyota Hilux vehicle and six hand-held grenades and many rounds of live ammunition.”
