Troops Repel Boko Haram Attack at Gulak, Adamawa


Troops of 28 Task Force Brigade of Operation LAFIYA  DOLE  have at about 7pm on Monday, 6 November 2017 successfully repelled Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) attack in Gulak,  Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa  State.

The troops fought gallantly to repel the terrorists who attempted to infiltrate Gulak town. The troops  thwarted the terrorists by neutralising a vehicle borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) trying to ram into a stationery gun truck in order to gain access into their location.  Unfortunately the shrapnel from the detonated VBIED killed a soldier and injured 3 other. The remains of the soldier have since been evacuated while the injured are receiving medical attention in a military hospital

In another development, troops of 28 Task Force Brigade in conjunction with Civilian vigilante at about 6:30am on Tuesday, 7 November 2017 neutralised 2 female suicide bombers at Waga Lawan in Madagali  Local Government  Area  of Adamawa State.  The 2 female suicide bombers were challenged while fleeing from the bush but refused all efforts to halt them. On sighting the suicide vest on them, they  were neutralised by the troops.

The  decimated BHTs  are more desperate and resorting to  persons and vehicle borne improvised explosive devices to attack soft targets and vulnerable members of the populace. The general public is please requested to be vigilant and  continue to volunteer information of strange persons and movements to the security agencies.
