SARS Overpowers Boko Haram Fighters
An ambush by Boko Haram terrorists was on Tuesday successfully prevented by gallant officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Borno State.
The terrorists had planned an attack on Mainok Village, along the Damaturu-Maiduguri Road but met stiff resistance from SARS personnel resulting in the exchange of gunfire.
Naija News gathered the SARS personnel overpowered the terrorists in the gun battle that ensued with many of the terrorists killed while others escaped with serious bodily injuries.
Four gun trucks were also recovered from the terrorists.
In a video clip made available to Naija News, the SARS Commander who led the operation, explained to a senior Army officer on patrol at Mainok, that his men gallantly, professionally and fearlessly repelled the attack, resulting in the killing of the Boko Haram members.
In his response, the Army senior officer commended the SARS operatives for their gallant efforts and appealed for a stronger collaboration between the Army troops and Police personnel in combating the insurgency war in Borno, and other parts of the country.
