Troops of 27 Task Force Brigade, Sector 2, Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), have repelled an attack by Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists in the outksirt of Buni Yadi, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The terrorists launch the attack in the early hours of Monday, November 13, 2023, at about 0300am, where an unspecified number of ISWAP terrorists who came from KAUSHUHUAWA’s direction with three guntrucks and four motorcycles launched an attack on Charlie Company, the location of the 120 Task Force Battalion behind Buni Yadi.
The attack according to sources was a reprisal to the recent neutralisation of five terrorists in MALUMTI around Buni Gari and the recovery of several equipment including one CONQUEROR APC.
Intelligence sources also revealed that the troops successfully repelled the attack after a heavy gunbattle, which forced the terrorists to withdraw into the Bush.
No casualties were recorded by the troops at the location, while the terrorists are believed to have escaped with their casualties, including those with gunshot wounds, as traces of blood were seen all over the places along the withdrawal route of the terrorists.
The general security situation in Buni Gari and environs has remained normal and under control.
