BREAKING I Fear as suspected terrorists kill troops in a border town near Abuja

According to reports, unidentified gunmen attacked and murdered an undetermined number of soldiers at a checkpoint near Zuma Rock in Niger State.

It was learned that the incident took place on Thursday, July 28, late at night, not far from Madalla town and a few meters from Zuba on the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

According to the Daily Trust, the terrorists came at the scene a few minutes after 7 o’clock and started shooting at the soldiers, killing a few of them.

“They took control of the area for about 30 minutes and kept on shooting before heading towards Kaduna axis of the expressway,” the source said. It should be noted that soldiers from Zuma Barracks arrived on the scene and assumed complete control roughly 20 minutes after the terrorists fled.

Days prior to the tragedy, in Abuja, terrorists engaged the Presidential Guards Brigade on the Kubwa-Bwari route. The Nigerian President is guarded by the Brigade, an elite division of the Nigerian Army.
