Terrorists in FCT ambush presidential guards, lay siege on Law School
The terrorists operating in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja are getting emboldened by the day as they ambushed men of the Guards Brigade.
It was gathered that the troops of the elite Guards Brigade, whose primary responsibility is guarding the FCT, especially the Presidential seat of government, were ambushed along the Bwari-Kubwa road while they were on routine patrol.
Meanwhile, the ambush which was forcefully repelled by the Brigade of Guards troops is sparking fears of the terrorists laying siege in the Bwari area which houses the Nigerian Law School and the headquarters of the Joint and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Three soldiers were reportedly wounded in the attack and they are already being treated at a military hospital in Abuja.
The cryptic message on the attack titled ‘Ambush Attack Against Own Troops Of Gds Bde’ reads:
