A reliable source told PRNigeria, that some of the BH fighters were killed while others escaped with serious injuries during the gun duel.
The SARS troops recovered four gun trucks from the terrorists.
Also, a video clip obtained by PRNigeria, showed the SARS Commander who led the operation, explaining to a senior Army officer on patrol at Mainok how his men “gallantly, professionally and fearlessly repelled the attack, eliminating some of the Boko Haram members”.
The Army senior officer, while hailing the SARS troops, appealed for a strong joint-collaboration between the Army troops and Police personnel in prosecuting the counter-insurgency war in Borno, and other parts of the North-East.
