13 Soldiers, police officer killed In fresh Boko Haram ambush

The Nigerian Army confirms that Boko Haram terrorists have killed at least 10 soldiers and one police officer in an ambush in Borno State. Deputy Director of Public Relations, Operation Lafiya Dole Theatre Command, Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu said the security operatives attached to 1 Division were on escort duty along Damaturu – Maiduguri Road when the incident occurred.

He, however, regretted that the troops fought through the ambush staged by the terrorists but lost their lives in the process. "The gallant troops engaged the terrorists in a firefight, courageously wading through the ambush. Sadly, 13 military and police personnel, including a police officer paid the supreme price while extricating themselves from the ambush" he said. The Army has since commenced a clearance operation to pursue and eliminate the terrorist ambush party and the bodies of the gallant soldiers and the policeman have been evacuated.
