JUST IN: Terrorist IED kills eight in Borno




At least eight people were killed today in Gamboru Ngala, Borno, when an IED detonated, according to a Civilian Joint Task Force source.

The blast ripped through a Hilux vehicle carrying CJTF members.

A source familiar with the incident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, revealed that five CJTF members, one hunter assisting the force, and three civilians were killed in the attack.

The town commander of the force confirmed the incident to reporters, adding that his younger brother was one of the fatalities.

‘Our men were on their way from Gamboru Ngala to Maiduguri when they detonated a planted mine,’ he said.

‘The blast claimed the lives of nine people, with two others sustaining injuries,’ he concluded.

This attack underscores the continuing threat posed by Boko Haram in Borno State.

The extremist group has been responsible for numerous acts of violence in the region for over a decade.

Authorities have not yet commented on the incident.

This report will be updated as more information becomes available.
