BORNO: Boko Haram terrorists attack Maiduguri power supply, plunge city into darkness

THE joy of the residents of Maiduguri over the restoration of electricity in the city has turned out to be short-lived.

This is because 72 hours after repairs of the power installations destroyed by hoodlums in January, Boko Haram terrorists struck again yesterday.

The terrorists were said to have blown up a power tower in the city and sabotaged power supply in Maiduguri for the second time this year.

Maiduguri on Wednesday got electricity restored after repairs of the installations destroyed by the hoodlums in January.
With yesterday’s attack, the city has been plunged into darkness again.

“I am tired, depressed,” one resident told Channels Television. “It’s just too much for us.”

The attack on the power tower came as scores of terrorists were annihilated by Nigerian troops in Chibok area.

They were annihilated by troops deployed in Chibok under 28 Task Force Brigade of Sector 1 Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

The troops achieved the feat in an ambush along Chibok – Damboa axis while acting on credible intelligence that some remnants of insurgents were fleeing due to the intensity of troops’ operations in Sambisa Forest.

The gallant troops laid ambush, engaged and lverwhelmed the criminals with aggressive firepower, neutralising nine terrorists in the process.

Several others escaped with serious gunshot wounds.

The troops also recovered 7 AK 47 Rifles and freed 3 kidnapped victims.

Similarly in another encounter, troops of 28 Task Force Brigade located in Askira equally laid a successful ambush along Askira – Chibok Main Supply Route (MSR) and neutralized 39 terrorists.

In the course of the encounter, troops successfully rescued 8 kidnapped victims from the terrorists.

According to the Nigerians Army during the operations, troops recovered another 8 AK 47 Rifles with 4 magazines, among other items.
