Terrorists from Boko Haram are alleged to have killed a number of soldiers on Thursday night when they attacked an Army post at Zuma Rock, which separates the FCT from Niger State.

According to sources, at around 8.30 p.m. on the Abuja-Kaduna highway, the terrorists arrived at Zuma Rock on the axis of Madalla and Suleija and ambushed the soldiers by firing from a variety of positions.

“For more than an hour, they fired nonstop at the checkpoint, and the soldiers there responded by defending themselves. But eventually, the firing ceased, according to a source.

According to the reports, the terrorists later gave up on their plan to enter Abuja and turned back toward the Kaduna axis.

The bandits, who were allegedly riding numerous motorbikes, reportedly attacked some communities and stores in Madalla while fleeing, carrying food on their motorbikes.

More soldiers and equipment from the Army base in Zuma Barracks were brought in to help at the spot after the terrorists withdrew.

Another source claimed that when gunshots broke out when a combined security operations team was patrolling the axis, they hurried to the site only to find that there was a fight going on between troops and robbers.

According to the source, security personnel dispatched reinforcement to the location by radioing the Army Barracks at Zuma Rock right away.

The Abuja-Kaduna Highway was jammed with traffic as a result of the violence, according to reports.

The attack occurs just six days after terrorists ambushed a presidential guard patrol unit along the Bwari-Kubwa Road, killing six soldiers and officers as a result of information that they were preparing an attack on the Nigerian Law School in Bwari.

In the FCT, tension has increased as a result of the attack and previous kidnapping events, and schools have been closed.

Due of a bandit attack that occurred in a nearby hamlet 24 hours earlier, the administration of Federal Government College, Kwali, requested that parents remove their children from the school.

Remember that on July 5, when the terrorists blew up the gates of Abuja’s Kuje Prison and released nearly 800 inmates, including 66 Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorist commanders and members, they also killed a member of the NSCDC.

Additionally, the terrorists had threatened to kidnap Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, and President Muhammadu Buhari.
