Boko Haram terrorists on Monday killed six civilians and wounded three soldiers in Borno.
The acting Director of army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman told news men that the insurgent attacked troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE escorting commercial vehicles from Damboa to Maiduguri, at Sanda General Area.
Usman said three soldiers, who sustained injuries during the incident had been evacuated to Maiduguri.
He added that another patrol team has been dispatched to pursue the attackers and would not relent until they were apprehended or killed.
“Additional security measures have also been put in place to avert re-occurrence,” Usman said.
