Two Boko Haram suspects escaped on Sunday in Kaduna after a gun battle which ensued between them and team of joint security operative which led to the death of one of the operatives.
An eye witness who is a neighbour to the residence of the Boko Haram suspects but pleaded anonymity said, the team of the security personnel raided the area at about 1am on Sunday when the area became saturated with gun shots that lasted for hours.
The incident occurred at a village known as Ungwan Keke-B in Chikun local government area of Kaduna.
According to the eye witness, although the two Boko Haram suspects whose names could not be ascertained escaped, their wives were arrested by the security operative after the gun battle that left their building shattered.
The Nation further gathered that, wives of the suspects were whisked away by the security operatives to an unknown destination.
Corroborating the eye witness information, the Dagaci (Village Head) of the area, Mallam Suleiman Mohammed also confirmed that they started hearing gun shots at about 1:00am on Sunday.
He also said, the team of security operatives which was made up of Soldiers and the State Security Service (SSS) later announced that the neighbours should all come out of their houses and ordered them to leave the area to avoid being a victim.
When our correspondent visited the area, the entire building where the Boko Haram suspects were residing were completely in shambles as blood stains of the dead security operative could be seen on the floor.
However, several efforts and calls made to the Deputy Director Army Public Relation of the 1 Division Nigerian Army, Kaduna was unsuccessful, as his mobile phones could not be reached as at the time of filing the report.
