According to the Army, three casualties were recorded during the attack that happened in Abuja.

The battalion which is a unit under the guards brigade, is responsible for protecting the president. They were reportedly on routine patrol along the Kubwa-Bwari road when they ran into the ambush.

Spokesman of the Guards Brigade, Captain Godfrey Abakpa told Channels Television that no soldier was abducted as being reported.

According to him, at the time of the attack, some soldiers could not be accounted for because they were taking cover from the attackers.

He said;

“No soldier was abducted; we only had three casualties and they were evacuated.”

Abakpa added that the troops dislodged “the criminals” from the area and had continued an exploitation operation within the vicinity of the attack.
