Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole have successfully repelled Boko Haram insurgents’ attack at Jakana village in Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State .

The News Agency of Nigeria gathered that the insurgents coordinated the 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 8 pm 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 gallant 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.
