Few hours to president Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Borno State, Boko Haram are still carrying out their attacks.

But the Nigerian Army said its troops repelled Boko Haram insurgents attack in Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno.

The army said on its Twitter handle that the troops repelled the insurgents’ attack while attempting to infiltrate Cross-Kauwa in Kukawa at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

It added that it would provide details on the attack later.
