Seven soldiers have been ambushed and killed by the Boko Haram insurgents on Damboa Maiduguri highway.


Legal adviser of the civilian JTF in Borno State, Barrister Jibrin Gunda, told Nigerian Tribune that although the soldiers were taken unawares, the vehicle and ammunition carted away on Wednesday have been recaptured and returned to base.

Maiduguri Damboa road is one of the roads that the Army declared safe last year, yet no vehicle can drive through without military escort.
