The terrorists, who descended on a primary school at Duwabafi village, Borno State, armed with AK 47 rifles, also converted a part of the school to their logistic materials’ base.

A statement signed by Colonel Sani Usman, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, said the soldiers who were on fighting patrol to rid elements of the terrorists from their camps, encountered the suspected elements holed up at the Primary School at Duwabafi village, Borno State, on Sunday.

He said: “There was heavy exchange of gunfire in which the patrol killed four suspected Boko Haram terrorists, recovered two AK-47 rifles, four various sizes of solar energy panels, several types of drugs and five motorcycles.”

“The patrol has returned to base and is further re-strategizing for more onslaughts on all remaining vestiges of Boko Haram elements within the area.’’
