Nigerian troops come under ambush attack


The troops of the Nigerian Army have come under ambush attack by Boko Haram Terrorists on February 9, 2017 at Ajeri, a village between Mafa and Dikwa local governments of Borno.

According to reports by informants who prefer anonymity, the Nigerian troops responded gallantly, but however, lost some men, while others suffered various degrees of injuries and are since evacuated to different medical facilities for treatment.

The troops were attacked while accompanying newly trained officers of the Nigerian Army.

About three soldiers are reported 'missing in action'.

The Muna - Mafa - Dikwa axis appears to harbour some active members of the insurgent group, going by recent reports.

It is established that most of the attacks that took place in Maiduguri in the last six months including and especially bomb blasts either occur in the area or appear to have come from through the route.

To this end, the pubic treats the axis with some apprehension.

Details shortly.
