Suspected Boko Haram terrorists on Friday attacked officials of the 7 Guards Battalion of the Nigerian Army Presidential Guards Brigade.

Premium Times reports that the incident, which took place late Friday night around the Bwari Area Council of Abuja, left three soldiers wounded and eight personnel killed.

Two of the slain personnel were officers, including a captain and lieutenant, while the remaining were soldiers.

According to a source within the army, the main aim of the terrorists is to attack the Nigerian Law School in Bwari and they may have already camped in the area.
