    THE Nigerian Army says it repelled Boko Haram terrorists attack in Michika, Adamawa state, on Monday night, killing some of the terrorists.

    In a statement signed by Sagir Musa, the army spokesman, the army said: “Boko Haram terrorists met their Waterloo and suffered heavy casualties evening the 19th of March 2019 when they attempted to infiltrate Michika in Adamawa State.”

    Earlier, TheCable had reported the attack on Michika, Adamawa state, which had many residents fleeing their homes.

    Speaking about the attack, the Army said: “At about 7.20 pm, gallant troops of 115 Task Force Battalion deployed at Lassa in Borno State received a distress call from vigilantes at Maikadiri village on movement of suspected Boko Haram terrorists along Road Maikadiri – Shuwari enroute Michika.

    “The troops immediately organized blocking positions and swooped on the terrorists which led to an exchange of fire. The terrorists attempted to escape, but were intercepted and suppressed with heavy volume of fire.

    “Consequently, the troops with reinforcement from 143 Battalion Gulak engaged the terrorists on Two Front Coordinated Attacks. The BHTs were completely routed by the troops, neutralizing many of them, while others fled in disarray due to superior firepower.”

    Musa said as a result of the army’s heavy power, the terrorists “hastily evacuated most of their corpses under the cover of darkness. The entire area has been dominated by own troops and the situation is completely under control.

    “Items captured from the terrorists include One Ford vehicle, two Toyota Starlet vehicles loaded with foodstuffs, one motorcycle and one tyre inflating machine.

    “Further exploitation is to be conducted this morning. Calm has since returned to the city and inhabitants of the town are hereby enjoined to report the presence of strange faces in their localities and go about their normal businesses.”
