Terrorists killed as Boko Haram storm Damboa with gun trucks, APC
Scores of Boko Haram terrorists were killed in Borno State on Wednesday by troops of the Nigerian military.
They were eliminated after a heavy gun fire with Nigerian troops in Damboa.
The town is located in the southern part of the state and is 87 kilometres from Maiduguri, the capital.
Some of the insurgents fled with gunshot injuries, abandoning their colleagues, vehicles, and motorcycles.
A security source told PRNigeria that the terrorists had invaded Damboa in a convoy of 11 gun trucks.
Some of them were in an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC).
“Their attempt to attack a military formation and civilians after infiltrating the town was thwarted by the gallant military forces,” the officer said.
