The Yobe state commissioner of police Patrick Egbuniwe disclosed this on Sunday as an aftermath of the repeated gunshots and continuous bombings that rocked the Nyanya and the Obasanjo Housing estates on Friday in Damaturu running through the night
Mr Egnuniwe said the JTF on patrol around the estates suspected a hide out of the radical Islamic sect and in efforts to get closed to the site witnessed a severe resistance leading to exchange of gun battle which detonates several explosive devices in the hideout.
He said three of the suspects were killed while a woman was arrested in the hideout.
He also disclosed that one AK47 rifle and several round of ammunitions were recovered in the hide out.
The recent attack is happening just two days after the visit of the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki to Yobe and Borno states.
