Boko Haram guerillas on Thursday trapped a Nigerian Army caravan in Borno, killing no less than 12 troopers prior to trucking away money and weapons.
Military sources on the cutting edges revealed to Peoples Gazette that the guerillas assaulted a caravan of equipped troopers going among Monguno and Maiduguri on Thursday morning.
The personalities of the troopers were not promptly acquired by The Gazette, and a representative for the Nigerian Army was inaccessible for remarks about the occurrence.
The Gazette saw the remaining parts of two officials and 10 fighters who lost their lives after the sudden weapon fight. The bodies were pressed in pickup trucks headed for a clinical focus in Maiduguri.
A few fighters were injured and gotten emergency treatment close to the location of the assault, as per sources and pictures imparted to The Gazette.
The extremists additionally apparently carried off three firearm trucks and rifles seized from the troopers, just as a huge number of naira in real money.
The Gazette couldn’t quickly affirm the genuine sum. In any case, it isn’t strange for vicious lawbreakers to assault a furnished military escort and hold onto money and weapons.
