Nigerian Soldiers Kill 73 Boko Haram Members

Nigerians soldiers in Borno State on Monday killed at least 73 members of the Boko Haram sect when the terrorists made yet another futile attempt to capture Konduga, a town 35km away from Maiduguri.
The troops, who engaged the terrorists for over five hours, however lost a soldier in the battle.
One of the soldiers stationed in Konduga said; the terrorists tried to attack the military base using herds of cows and a car filled with improvised explosive devices.
“They intended to take us by surprise but even before they came we had pre-information about them and we laid ambush after securing our territory,” the soldier told journalists in Maiduguri by telephone.
“Initially they flocked a herd of cows into Konduga in order to create some kind of detour and confuse us to enable the suicide bomber attack from another side.
“But we were able to gun the vehicle from afar before it got near and the car exploded. After that, the terrorists came in large numbers and we engaged in several hours of shooting with them.”
