Troops kill scores of Boko Haram insurgents in ambush


Troops on patrol around Delwa and neighboring communities in Borno State, Thursday,  successfully broke through insurgents’ ambush, 35kilometres to Maiduguri, as they advanced to dislodge insurgents who were massing up in the area.

The fierce fire fight that ensued as the troops wadded through the ambush left scores of insurgents dead, while 3 soldiers died in action.
The Defence Twitter said that 7 soldiers who incurred various degrees of injuries have been evacuated for treatment while the troops have continued with their mission.

There were reports early yesterday that the deadly Islamic sect, Boko Haram, had taken over one of the major routes linking Maiduguri, the Borno State capital to the Southern parts of the state,  forcing travelers to take other longer routes to their destinations.

Those traveling to the Borno South had to go through Yode and Gombe States before turning Northwards to get home, in what victims were said to have described as tortuous journey.
It was learnt that travelers going to Damboa and Biu were the worst hit by yesterday’s experience.




  1. The Almighty God owned the universe. He is responsible for creation of all things. He advised that all humans should be their brothesr keeper. He commanded us to love all persons just as we love ourselves. He put humans incharge of all other of His creations. He advised that we should not waste the lives of other of His creations. He loves us that is why He made water, air, crops and all other necessesity of life available for us. Glory be to His name Amen.

    The ordinary people being slaughtered and killed are not the main problem of this country therefore the need for the ordinary to be protected even by the terrorists. We are all lamenting for lack of sincerity, honesty, cheating, stilling, embezelment, non-payment of pentioners 53% arears after many year, lack of job for men and women of this country. May Our God made the Terrorists to see reason to stop action of killing and slaughtering of ordinary people of this our country. May the Lord have solution to our problems Amen.
