The troops, however, tracked the assailants to a makeshift camp at the outskirt of Arufu in neighbouring Taraba State.
On sighting the troops, the armed bandits opened fire, troops overwhelmed the criminals with high-intensity fire, killing 2 of them while others fled in disarray with gunshot wounds.
