Soldiers battle Boko Haram as terrorists attempt to infiltrate Damboa

Troops of Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) have thwarted an attempted attack by the Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists on Damboa town in Borno, says the Nigerian Army.

Army spokesman Onyema Nwachukwu disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Mr Nwachukwu said the troops of 25 Task Force Brigade successfully quelled a dawn attack attempt on the town in the early hours of Sunday by terrorists.

He said the terrorists tried to infiltrate the town but resisted the Nigerian troops, adding that the terrorists suffered gunshot wounds, forcing them to beat a retreat.

The army spokesperson added the troops were currently on the trail of the fleeing terrorists, disclosing that two vehicles belonging to the Civilian Joint Task Force were razed in the exchange of fire that ensued.
