Four Insurgents Killed, Five Soldiers Injured In Maiduguri Attack

The Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, on Tuesday said that the Special Forces have foiled an attempt by four suicide bombers to blast an NNPC facility along the Maiduguri – Damboa Road.

He said three of the four cars laden with the Improvised Explosive Devices exploded when soldiers fired at the vehicles at a community called Mule on the outskirt of Maiduguri.

“Three of the four explosive laden vehicles were demobilized by shots fired at them by soldiers at the check point shortly before the explosions that rocked the area” he said.

He added that, “Five soldiers were wounded while the civilian casualties are yet to be determined.”
