Nigerian troops have reportedly recorded a victory against Boko Haram terrorists in the town of Konduga in Borno State

According to reports, Nigerian soldiers have engaged Boko Haram insurgents in Borno and managed to repel their attack, killing 150 of the terrorists.

The fierce battle is said to have occurred in the Konduga area of Borno, according to findings made by Sahara Reporters.

The militants were reportedly about 200 in number and they invaded the area in an armored personnel carrier (APC), six Hilux buses, two Honda cars rigged with explosives with suicide drivers and numerous motorcycles.

Soldiers from the Maimalari Barracks were said to have ambushed the terrorists as they drove into Konduga, a town about 50 miles from Maiduguri.

A source reportedly said:

“We knew about [Boko Haram’s] planned attack three days ago, and we had prepared for them,”

According to another source:

“Today’s attack by Boko Haram was their first foray towards Maiduguri,” said a security source. “And we gave them the shock of their lives,”

Boko Haram is said to be making moves to invade and take over Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
