3 Boko Haram terrorists killed, one captured in Borno State, Northeast Nigeria

Three terrorists believed to be part of the remnants of Abubakar Shekau faction of Boko Haram terrorist group have been killed after they attacked farmers and looted their produce in their farm along Maiduguri-Damaturu Road in Borno State, Northeast Nigeria.

The terrorists were killed by members of Civilian Joint Task Force(CJTF), a Vigilante group supporting the military operations in the northeast who also arrested one of them, according to PR Nigeria.

They were intercepted by a CJTF team led by one Saminu Audu at Lamboa, between Minok- Janaka along the Damaturu – Maiduguri road after they had attacked and killed two farmers and looted agricultural produce.

The attack on farmers occurred on Thursday at about 3.30 pm when two brothers were harvesting their farm produce near Daiwa on the way to Damboa.

According to a source, “the terrorists shot the farmers, killing two while injuring one person.

“However, a team led by one Saminu Audu, Commander of Intelligence of the CJTF, intercepted some of the terrorists at Lamboa, between Minok- Janaka along the Damaturu – Maiduguri road.

“After a fierce confrontation, three of the terrorists were killed while one was captured alive.

“The terrorists are remnants of Boko Haram terrorists of the Abubakar Shekau faction that refused to pay allegiance to ISWAP. They depend on robbery and kidnapping of commuters for survival.”
