Nigeria: 42 insurgents killed in Madagali as soldiers repel Boko Haram attacks
Nigerian troops of “Operation Lafiya Dole,” stationed in Adamawa state, last night recorded another plus in the on-going counter-insurgency operations by courageously repelling a well planned attack by insurgents in Madagali, killing 42 terrorists according to reports.
Scores of Boko Haram terrorists, in their usual commando style laid a noiseless siege on Barkin Dutse village of Madagali at the dusk of Monday, met their waterloo, as gallant soldiers repelled the attacks, killing 42 terrorist and leaving scores wounded with gun-shot injuries.
Reports from residents claim, the insurgents had converged on Barkin Dutse and were advancing towards Gulak, the headquarters of Madagali local government area of the state.
The insurgents had reportedly targeted the attack and capture of Gulak town. But while advancing in the dark, information was relayed to the troops who responded swiftly, by engaging the insurgents in a fierce gun battle, which allegedly left scores of them dead, as the invading terrorists were furiously rolled back with the superior gunfire of troops.
