Emerging report indicates that at least 10 Soldiers have been killed, and some others badly injured by some armed Fulani bandits terrorists who attacked a Military Base, in Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, at about 6:30pm, on Monday.
Some Security sources revealed this to Channels Television; however, the Nigerian Military authorities are yet to confirm the attack.
A Security source in the area said on Tuesday, that the Soldiers were attacked at an Army Forward Operational Base, located around the Polwire area, close to Mikati Farm, along the Kaduna-Birnin Gwari Road.
He explained that the Soldiers, who were few in number, were taken unaware by the terrorists who stormed the base in large numbers on motorcycles, with sophisticated weapons, and immediately opened fire on the Soldiers.
According to the source, the bandits monitored the movement of the Soldiers, and when some of them went out to the Headquarters of the Forward Operational Base, FOB, located inside Birnin-Gwari town, they immediately launched an attack on the few Soldiers at the FOB extension.
The superior firepower of the bandits led to the death of about 10 Soldiers, while a patrol vehicle was also destroyed during the attack.
