According to an official Army statement, the firefight started when troops of 192 Battalion Gwoza, Borno State, in conjunction with members of the Civilian Joint Task Force, came in contact with an unspecified number of hard boyz while on a fighting patrol along Gwoza -Yemteke Road early on Wednesday.
