Boko Haram Kills Nine Soldiers In Ambush.

A top military source with the 23rd Armored Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Adamawa State has said that members of the Boko Haram sect ambushed some soldiers earlier today, killing at least nine and injuring others.
The soldiers had been drafted to counter a Boko Haram offensive in Izhe in Madagali local government area of Adamawa State. The source disclosed that, apart from nine soldiers who were killed, several others sustained various degrees of injury. He also stated that the military killed several terrorists during the attack.  The source revealed that the attackers from the extremist Islamist sect were operating from forests close to the Republic of Cameroon. He added that the military was planning to intensify aerial surveillance of the area and the launch of air bombardment of the sect’s hiding places as part of a broad counter offensive. A civilian source who escaped to Yola told our reporter that the insurgents were fully based around villages bordering Nigeria and Cameroon. SR.
