Bloody Ambush: Boko Haram strikes, killing military personnel

A deadly ambush by Boko Haram insurgents targeted a military convoy transporting a Lieutenant and fellow soldiers along the Biu-Buratai-Buni Yadi road, a notorious stretch linking Borno and Yobe states.

“The attack, which occurred on Thursday evening, resulted in the tragic deaths of the Lieutenant, a driver, a gunner, and four other soldiers”.

The incident adds to the grim toll of violence on this perilous road, known for frequent deadly assaults. Reports suggest that the ambush sparked a fierce exchange of gunfire near Kamuya village, with unconfirmed casualties among the attackers.

“The soldiers, belonging to the 135 Special Force Battalion Forward Operating Base in Buratai, were en route to Damaturu, the Yobe state capital, to procure fuel when they fell into the terrorists’ trap”.

A security source also confirmed the development. He said, “Yes based on the situation report, soldiers of 135 Special Force BN FOB in Buratai were ambushed by terrorists on their way to Damaturu, the Yobe state capital to buy fuel.

“Unfortunately, one (1) officer was killed, including a driver, gunner plus four (4) other escort”. Said the Security Source.
