Troops foil terrorist attack on Kaduna

The Nigerian army has said its troops on counter-terrorism mission in Kaduna State foiled a terrorist attack on a village.

The army also said troops neutralised two of the attackers.

According to a statement from the Department of Army Public Relations, the troops who were acting on intelligence, intercepted four armed terrorists on motorbikes at a known terrorists’ crossing point in Kurmin Aja, in the Kagarko Local Government Area of the state, moments before their planned strike.

The statement noted that in a well-executed ambush, the troops engaged the terrorists in an intense firefight and neutralised two of them, while others fled with gunshot wounds into a nearby forest.

After the operation, a thorough search of the area led to the recovery of two AK-47 rifles, 30 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, three magazines, and two motorbikes belonging to the terrorists.

The army advised residents of the area to remain vigilant, go about their lawful businesses and promptly report any suspicious activity to security agencies.
