Boko Haram insurgents yesterday attacked the 120 Task Force Battalion of the Army at Goniri in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe state.

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 newsmen that no soldier lost his life in the attack except one soldier that was wounded.
