Troops of 121 Task Force Battalion, 26 Task Force Brigade, on Sunday successfully repelled an attack on their location by suspected Boko Haram terrorists at Pulka, Borno State.

Narrating what happened, Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said last night: “The terrorists who came through Banki axis of Sambisa forest, attempted to inflict damage on our troops. But the vigilant soldiers rose to the occasion and dealt decisively with the terrorists by killing 6 of them. They also recovered 1 Fabrique Nationale (FN) rifle with registration number 167229, two belts of 148 rounds of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition and 1 FN rifle magazine loaded with 7.62mm ammunition (Special). The troops also blew up 3 Vehicles laden with Improvised Explosives Device (VBIEDs).

“Unfortunately, 5 soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries during the attack. They have been moved to the unit’s Medical Reception Station for treatment.”
