Nigerian troops of 101 special Forces Battalion on Exercise Ayem Akpatuma, Cat Race, deployed at Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State swiftly responded to a distress call and supported troops at Gwamba village under attack by Fulani herdsmen on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

Despite the swift reaction to rescue the village from destruction, the notorious herdsmen set the village ablaze before the troops arrival.

The determined troops trailed the herdsmen and arrested six of them at Garigiji village while trying to escape.

During the process of the arrest, the herdsmen showed resistance, which made the alert troops engage them and killed 10 of them.

Items recovered from the herdsmen were one AK 47 rifle, 41 rounds of 7.62mm special, one locally made rifle with 25 cartridges, one cutlass, looted clothes and one motorcycle.
