Remnants of the Boko Haram insurgents in the north-eastern part of Nigeria have inflicted damage on a group of civilians and soldiers.
 
This is an official statement from Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman - Acting Director Army Public Relations concerning the latest attack by Boko Haram operatives that left 5 people dead and 3 soldiers injured.

Read a part of the press release below:
 
Yesterday afternoon, suspected elements of the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists who were foraging for food, ambushed troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE escorting commercial vehicles from Damboa to Maiduguri, at Sanda general area, Borno State.

Unfortunately, 5 civilians lost their lives at the incident and another died on the way to the hospital. Three soldiers also sustained injuries.

The wounded have been evacuated to Maiduguri. Consequently, another robust patrol team has been despatched to reinforce the troops, clear the general area and pursue the terrorists.

This unfortunate incident has brought to the fore the need for more vigilance and cooperation amongst all.

We would like to assure the public that we would not allow this isolated incident to thwart the peace and security commuters enjoy along the route and all other opened routes in the North East.

Troops are on the heels of the attackers and would not relent till they are apprehended or killed. Additional security measures have also been placed to avert reoccurrence.
