State, North-east Nigeria.



The Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.
He said the troops of 101 Special Forces Battalion on Exercise Ayem
Akpatuma (Cat Race) deployed at Numan LGA had responded to a distress
call on Tuesday and supported their colleagues at Gwamba village under
attack by the assailants.
Despite swift reaction to rescue the village from destruction,

fire before the soldiers arrived.
