…as Army foils attempt to seize Damboa

Scores of suspected members of the Boko Haram terror­ists were yesterday killed by the troops of the Nige­rian Army when they at­tempted to attack Damboa town, the headquarters of Damboa Local Govern­ment area of Borno State, according to sources.

A resident of the area, Mallam Mohammed Bu­lama, told our correspon­dent on phone that the insurgents who came at about noon to attack the town were crushed by the troops of 195 Battal­ion of the Nigerian army.

He said, “Scores of the Boko Haram insurgents, who attempted to attack Damboa at about 12:00 PM met their Waterloo, as the troops of the Nigerian Army intercepted them at Kalla village at the out­skirts of Damboa”.

A civilian member of the Joint Task Force, JTF, Abbas Haske said the in­surgents were intercepted at Kalla village, about two kilometers away from Damboa when the troops of the Nigerian Army sighted them.

He said, “The insur­gents who came about noon were incepted by the troops, which swiftly reacted by shooting artil­lery missiles and repelled them; they crushed all of them, as scores of them were killed in the process.”

According to him, the army has done a good job, as the insurgents’ corpses and burnt vehicles were scattered by the roadside in the bushes.

A military source, who did not want his name in print, told our correspon­dent in Maiduguri that the troops in Damboa suc­cessfully foiled another attempt to take over the town, as they crushed the insurgents.

“Yes, our troops in Damboa this afternoon successfully foiled an at­tempt to sack Damboa town, where they killed scores of the insur­gents,” he said.
