No fewer than 10 Nigerian Soldiers have been killed and several others missing after some members of the Boko Haram insurgents laid an ambush for troops of 25 Task Force Brigades, Damboa. 

Sharareportes report that the incident occurred at Maduguri-Damboa Highyway, on Saturday.

It was gathered that the insurgents attacked the soldiers when they were returning from clearing and patrol operation against them.

Damboa which about 85 km from South of Maduguri has been one of the most attacked local government headquarters in Borno State.

According to a security source who spoke with SaharaReporter, death tolls could surge since many soldiers are still missing.

“It was a surprise attack. A very close-range ambush. The terrorists hid inside heaps of foliage they gathered along the road and opened fire on the convoy as it passed.

“At the last count, we had more than 10 soldiers who lost their lives in that ambush. Many are still missing,” he told SaharaReporters on Monday.
