“However, this morning, we were informed of the engagement of the insurgents by the military in a fierce battle to reclaim the area.
“Last night, we were told that the insurgents had come into Buni Yadi with over thirty Hilux Vans loaded with fighters and different kinds of weapons, possibly with the aim of attacking the state capital but for the restriction of movement by the security operatives to ensure hitch free Sallah celebration in the state”, he disclosed.
