Nigerian Army Thwart Terrorist Attack on Aulari
Nigerian military troops Sunday morning thwarted a planned terrorist attack at Aulari town, Borno State, according to PRNigeria.
The online medium claimed that the terrorist attack was repelled on Sunday, citing local sources in Bama.
It said its sources further disclosed that it was a group of ISWAP fighters who attempted to overrun Aulari, a location about 11km West of Bama, quoting them as saying: “Troops of Operation HADIN KAI successfully waded off the attack, while the terrorists had to retreat towards Sambisa Forest.
PRNigeria said a military intelligence officer confirmed the development to it, and quoted him to have said “A NAF A-Jet was subsequently scrambled to track them as they retreat and luckily, they were sighted in 4 Gun trucks which were engaged.
“After engaging the gun trucks with rockets, 3 were completely destroyed, while the other was immobilized.
“A number of insurgents were also neutralized in the process while others were in disarray.”
The military in Nigeria have, of recent, recorded what some commentators have described as ‘reasonable success’ against terrorists in the country. There are concerns however on whether they can sustain the tempo.
