Terrorists attack Presidential Guards after threat to abduct Buhari


Troops of the Guards Brigade have been ambushed by armed bandits in Abuja in an attack which occurred barely 24 hours after terrorists threatened to abduct President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna Governor Nasir el’Rufai in a viral video.


The Nation reported that three soldiers were wounded during the attack. The publication also reported that the terrorists were heading to the Nigerian Law School in Bwari when they ran into the troops.


Intelligence sources told Vanguard;


“Troops on routine patrol along Kubwa – Bwari were ambushed by suspected terrorists. Three soldiers were injured during the attack. The soldiers have been evacuated for medical attention.”


Spokesperson of the Guards, Captain Godfrey Anebi Abakpa who confirmed the attack, said the ambush happened within the general area of Bwari.


Abakpa said this shows that the terrorists were actually within the location and possibly preparing to carry out their plans to attack the Nigerian law school in Bwari.


The wounded soldiers have been evacuated to the Military Hospital for immediate medical attention. He said;


“Yes, they (troops) were attacked and the attack was successfully repelled. We had a few wounded in action who have been taken to the hospital and are receiving treatments.

“At the moment our troops are still combing the general area to get rid of the criminals that have been threatening the general area. It is advised that residents go about their lawful businesses and keep cooperating with us by giving us timely information to enable us win the fight against the criminals”.
