At least 33 Boko Haram militants were killed by Nigerian troops in a gunfight on Sunday, according to military sources on Tuesday.

Boko Haram on Friday kidnapped four soldiers and two police officers along Damaturu-Maiduguri road.

Military sources, who revealed this to an online medium, said Boko Haram attacked the security officers in an ambush near Auno village on Damaturu-Maiduguri road.


The insurgents who appeared in military uniforms were said to have mounted a roadblock on the highway with three Hilux vans before taking away the hostages who were returning from a short break.

“Four military men were abducted in an 18 seater bus while two other policemen were abducted in a Gulf car,” one of the sources said.
