The Nigerian Army has repelled a Boko Haram attack in the hometown of Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai.
The terrorists were said to have arrived the town at about 6pm on Wednesday, January 20, 2016, according to Daily Trust.
They were however stopped by soldiers on guard who returned fire in a battle that lasted two hours.
“Many of the insurgents were killed. We saw them taking their dead members and injured into their vans,” a source said.
“But at the end of the day, they were unable to take the bodies of three of their members who were killed,” he added.
Three Boko Haram members were said to have been killed in the attack while the army suffered no casualty.
