Terrorists attack Niger-Abuja military checkpoint

On Thursday evening, suspected terrorists attacked a military checkpoint near Zuma Rock, which serves as a border between Niger State and the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja.

As of the time of writing, information on the attack was still sketchy.

However, it was learned that the Nigerian Army has launched a clearance operation in the aftermath of the attack.

The incident was said to have caused traffic congestion in the area.

According to reports, the Mandala-Kaduna road has been cordoned off by the men of the Nigerian Army.

A military source who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The terrorists took control of the area for over 30 minutes and kept shooting before heading towards the Kaduna axis of the expressway.”

However, soldiers from the Zuma barracks stormed the scene and took full control.

A patrol team of policemen later arrived at the scene.
