According to reports, before the terrorists could move, men of the 7 Division ambushed them with armored patrol tankers and rocket-propelled grenade, RPG, killing about 40 of the terrorists. Arms and ammunition were also recovered from the operation.

A security source confirmed the incident in Maiduguri, saying, “We stopped what could have been deadly attacks by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in Bama and Konduga Councils.

“Information available indicated that over 100 terrorists were ambushed by security operatives based on intelligence report near Bama town and that unspecified number of them were killed, using bombs and sophisticated weapons.”
