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.
