Atleast three personnel of the Elite Guards Brigade were reported wounded in an attack by suspected terrorists at the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory.
A military source told our correspondent that the attack happened while the troops were on patrol.
The source added that the troops engaged them and successfully repelled the attack.
The source said, “The troops of the elite Guards Brigade were ambushed along Bwari-Kubwa road. But the ambush was forcefully repelled by the Brigade of Guards troops.
“The troops were on routine patrol of the area when they were attacked. However, three soldiers were wounded in the attack and they are already being treated at a military hospital in Abuja.
“The attack happening within the area of Bwari showed that the terrorists are actually within the location and possibly to carry out their plans of attacking the law school in Bwari among other targets in the area.”
When contacted, the Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, Guards Brigade Abuja, Captain Godfrey Abakpa, confirmed the attack, adding that troops were combing the area to apprehend the criminals.
