The insurgents appeared to have come from Shettimari  in  the Borno axis of the town and engaged the soldiers in a fierce fight that lasted for almost four hours.

A military source  said the attack  was  effectively repelled.

“But  we lost one soldier in the fight,” the source said .

Spokesperson for  the 27 Task Force Brigade in Damaturu Lt. George Okupe  who confirmed the attack told our correspondent that no soldier  lost his life in the attack  except one soldier that was wounded.

He  said  that the terrorists came by foot to the 120 Task Force Battalion in Goniri at about 5.50am on Friday and  immediately launched an attack.

They were  over-powered and the rest fled,he said.

Lt. Okupe  said about 14 Boko Haram terrorists were killed in Tashan Fulani Village around Chorokusko in Babangida Local Government Area of Yobe State while weapons including  6AK 47 riffles,   3 IEDs,  four  36 handheld grenades 1GPMG,  4 magazines, 382 Rams  of 7.62 MM Nato were recovered from the terrorists.

Goniri is one of the communities in Yobe state recently recovered  from Boko Haram by soldiers and it is currently being cleared of deadly mines laid by the terrorists.

Yesterday’s  attack  came less than 24  hours after the  Minister of Interior  Abdulrahman Dambazau  visited Yobe  in company of all the service chiefs   including  Police  Inspector General  Solomon Arase, the Comptroller General of Immigration Service, Martins Kure Abashe, Comptroller  General of Prison Service, Dr. Peter Ekpendu,and the Commandant General,  Nigeria  Security and Civil Defense Corp, Abdullahi Gana to assess the extent of destruction to police and other security formations .

    I thought that Boko Haram was defeated last year December. If they are still fighting why are the trigger happy soldiers left in Onitsha to kill non violent Biafra demonstrators?They should quickly send such soldiers to Yobe to do what they know to do best.( with due respect to our good soldiers ) God will bless and protect all of you.
