Normalcy restored in Yobe community after failed terrorists’ attack


The Nigerian Army said the situation at Katarko in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State had been brought under control after troops foiled an attempted attack by terrorists on the military location in the town.
The army spokesman, Brig.-Gen Texas Chukwu, in a statement on Thursday, said that the troops immediately swung into action following a tip-off and pushed the terrorists backward with superior firepower.
He, however, said some of the terrorists escaped into nearby bushes but efforts were on to get them, adding that the troops were currently embarking on clearance patrol in the area.
Chukwu urged Yobe residents in general and Katarko in particular, to go about their legitimate businesses and report any suspicious activities or movement in their area to the law enforcement agents for prompt action.
