The News Agency of Nigeria gathered that the terrorists planned to attack at Jakana barely 12 hours after the troops repelled them in Bama and Rann communities.
Although there were no official comments either by the military and government agencies, reports said the gallant troops engaged the insurgents in a gun duel to repel the attacks.
A competent source at the Civilian Joint Task Force , disclosed that heavily armed insurgents attacked Jakana at about 8pm on Friday.
The source disclosed that the troops, with the support of other security personnel and members of the vigilante, engaged the criminals in a serious gun battle which lasted for over an hour.
It said that the troops routed the insurgents and many of them escaped with gunshot wounds.
The vigilante fighter added that there were no casualties on the part of the troops and members of the public in the attack.
It will be recalled that some troops had earlier repelled attacks by the insurgents at Bama and Rann in the early morning hours of Friday.
The insurgents burnt houses and a Malnourishment Treatment Centre, operated by an NGO at Rann community.
The military authorities are yet to comment on the incidents.
