“The terrorists opened fire at our patrol vehicle killing all but one soldier on board,” a security source said yesterday. There was no official statement by the military authorities on the ambush yet. Another source from the military told our correspondents that the only soldier that escaped by running into the bush had since returned to the main base. “The six dead bodies had been recovered from the scene of the incident,” he said, adding that the gun truck was completely destroyed by the attackers. “The six dead bodies have been recognized as our own. The bodies included Chief of Staff at the 29 Taskforce Brigade, Colonel K. E. Elemele and that of Captain A. Mohammed as well as bodies of four other soldiers,” he said. It was further gathered that late Elemele was on his way to Abuja for a course when the unfortunate incident happened. Daily Trust further gathered that immediately after the ambush, the assailants proceeded to a military facility in Jakana and engaged the operatives in gun duel that last more than an hour. “They approached the Jakana military base in a convoy of seven trucks, all of them mounted with machine guns,” the source said.
