However, some locals who spoke with our correspondent on Tuesday morning, said many residents have returned to their homes after a robust response by the ground and Air Task Force.

PRNigeria learnt that the troops’ counter operation, led by the Acting General Officer Commanding, GOC 7 Division, Brig. Gen. Abdulwahab Eyitayo resulted in the elimination of some of the terrorists.

“A serious gun battle among troops and the insurgents ensued lasting several hours. This then forced the troops to technically withdraw from their base.

“But the terrorists met their waterloo after the troops engaged some of them who were fleeing. Many of them were killed, even as some of the terrorists escaped with gunshot wounds,” an intelligence officer told PRNigeria.
