Boko Haram kill atleast 18 people in bloody fight with Nigerian soldiers in Borno Village

At least 18 people were killed and 84 wounded when Boko Haram clashed with Nigerian soldiers near the northeastern city of Maiduguri overnight, a report by AFP revealed.

Speaking on the outskirts of Maiduguri, Benlo Dambatto, an official from the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) told AFP that 18 bodies have been recovered so far after the bloody clash.

“So far we have recovered 18 dead bodies from the two villages Bale Shuwa and Bale Kura,” Dambatto said.

Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, is the birthplace of Boko Haram, whose nearly nine-year fight to establish a hardline Islamic state in northeast Nigeria has claimed at least 20,000 lives and displaced more than two million people.

“The victims were killed while trying to escape the fight between the insurgents and the military,” said the Borno branch of SEMA.
