In Maiduguri Boko Haram Kills 7 New Army Recruits Abducts A female Soldier and Two Others


On Thursday Boko Haram Ambushed an Army Convoy of Army new recruits. According to the Washington Post, the attack occurred on Thursday evening, February 9, near Mafa town on the main road 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Maiduguri in Borno state.

The attack has been confirmed by an army officer who spoke under the condition of anonymity.

A humanitarian worker also said he heard military radio traffic confirming the attack.

According to Premium Times not fewer than 20 other recruits were injured in the gun battle which occurred along the Maiduguri-Dikwa road in the North-Eastern State. Dikwa is 70 kilometres east of Maiduguri.
The report quotes Army sources as saying that three other soldiers, including a female, were declared missing after the incident.

Quoting eyewitnesses, Premium Times reports that the battle between the insurgents and the soldiers began at about 7.30pm on Thursday after a detachment of troops numbering about 250 soldiers and one officer ran into a Boko Haram ambush as they traveled through the area in Army trucks and buses owned by the Borno state government.

The terrorists were said to have suddenly emerged in large numbers from the bushes and opened fire on the soldiers who were mostly young soldiers fresh from training.

The soldiers are said to be members of the 76 Regular Recruit Intake of Depot Nigerian Army, Zaria.

After the attack, the Boko Haram terrorists fled into surrounding bushes and villages, reportedly taking away with them a gun truck, a mine detector, some AK 47 rifles, explosives and other weapons.

However, effort to get confirmation from the military spokesperson was unsuccessful as he did not immediately comment.

Boko Haram insurgents have continued to launch isolated attacks on military formations after they were driven out of the Sambisa forest, their last strong hold in December 2016.
