BY GRACE ANYANWU, ABUJA – Nigerian troops have repelled Boko Haram attacks in a deadly clash in Monguno Local Government Area of Borno State.
It was gathered that the deadly terrorists repeatedly attacked Monguno but failed in their several attempts in the past to overrun the garrison town.
Intelligence sources informed PRNigeria that a patrol team of the Operation Lafiya Dole engaged in the counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency efforts against the Boko Haram and Islamic State in West Africa (ISWAP) terrorists near Monguno town on Tuesday evening. 
As part of the Army strategies, re-enforcement was quickly sent from troops located in other platforms to assist in repelling the attack with casualties on both sides.
“The attack was subsequently repelled. Though there were fewer casualties on the Nigerian troops through Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices, many Boko Haram Terrorists were however eliminated during the encounter,” the source said.
