According to a statement by the army spokesman, Col. Sani Usman, issued in Abuja on Friday, at about 9.45 p.m. a suspected female suicide bomber attempted to enter the military location in Yamtake, but a vigilant sentry on duty gunned her down and she died instantly.

Usman explained that the failed attack was followed up with another attempt by terrorists, but “was decisively dealt with by troops”.

“The troops killed all the four attackers, including two suicide bombers and recovered two AK-47, three magazines, 109 rounds of 7.62mm (Special), one torchlight, one water bottle, three magazine carriers, one illuminator pyrotecnic and some quantity of drugs.

“Unfortunately, we lost a soldier in the process,” Usman said.
