10 Hadin Kai Troops Killed In Borno Insurgent Ambush

Barely a week after dozens of Boko Haram insurgents surrendered to troops of the Hadin Kai brigade, the islamist group hit back on the forces on Thursday, killing 10 soldiers.
The soldiers were killed in an ambush as they made their way in a convoy from Monguno to Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
According to news report, the soldiers were taken unaware as they reportedly moved certain items and personnel from one the Super camps to the Maiduguri command centre.
“The insurgents must have planted the mines over the night, with information that the troops will use the road by morning,” a source said.
“Not less than 10 of the soldiers, including an officer believed to be a unit commander, were killed in the attack. Some others who sustained injuries have been evacuated.”
The Islamists allegedly took away some of the weapons other hardwares belonging to the troops.
