A few hours after the Chief of Army Staff Gen Faruk Yahaya assumed charge, Boko Haram terrorists attempted an audacious attack on troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Rann, the Headquarters of Kala Balge LGA in Borno State.
Several terrorists mounted on gun trucks attempted to infiltrate the main entrance to the town. Highly spirited troops countered the terrorists’ advance and humiliated them to the point that they abandoned their evil mission and fled in disgrace.
They chased the terrorist and made sure the town and its residents were no longer at risk. As a result, the troops destroyed one of the gun trucks and recovered multiple weapons, including one anti-aircraft gun, two machine guns and eight AK-47 rifles, neutralizing ten terrorists.
