10 Soldiers, Scores of Insurgents Killed in Latest Boko Haram Attack in Adamawa
at least 10 soldiers and scores of Boko Haram fighters have been reported dead after a fierce gun battle between the two in Gombi town of Adamawa State which had been under the sect’s control since last week.
Gombi town, seen as an entry point to Yola, the state capital, was stormed by the Boko Haram sect last Thursday.
Residents of the town told the BBC that the insurgents took on the troops who wanted to reclaim the town in a shoot-out yesterday morning.
“I can’t say the number of casualties during the fight but the sect members left the place,” a resident said.
The sect attacked Gombi town after the Civilian JTF reclaimed Mubi, the state’s second largest town, from the terrorists.
A scorched-earth military response reclaimed the territory but deadly Boko Haram raids on towns and villages in the area have continued unabated.
