Reports emanating from Erena, Shiroro local government area, Niger State indicate that in the early hours of today, terrorists in their large numbers stormed the town in an attempt to unleash havock on defenceless, peaceful and unsuspecting locals.
But unfortunately for the hydraheaded monsters, they met a vehement resistance from Security Joint Task Force (comprising conventional security and local vigilantes) stationed at Day Secondary School, Erena.
They were engaged in a fierce gun battle which lasted for hours and consequently, the criminals couldn’t gain access to the town. There were sporadic gunshots as sounds of gunshots could be heard from all over places.
At the time of filing this report, the casualty figures from both sides have not been ascertained as reports at hand are still sketchy.
On the whole, the deadly attack was successfully repelled. Kudos to our galant officers and local vigilantes for this heroic outing.
May Almighty Allah come to our rescue, Ameen.
