Boko Haram kills 8 in Borno

 Boko Haram insurgents have reportedly killed eight members of a civilian militia force on Sunday.

They hid in trees and opendd fire as they waited for troops to go on a joint dawn offensive, Punch reports.

The members of the civilian joint task force (CJTF) were waiting for soldiers at Kayamla village, in the Konduga area of Borno state, northeast Nigeria, when the attack happened.

“We lost eight comrades in an ambush by Boko Haram gunmen at about 5:30 am (0430 GMT),” said CJTF member Ibrahim Liman in the state capital Maiduguri, which is 10 kilometres (six miles) away.

“The vigilantes had gone to Kaymala as an advance party that was to be joined later by troops to launch an attack on Boko Haram enclave.

“Unknown to them, Boko Haram terrorists, who by all indications had prior knowledge of the offensive, ambushed them by climbing into the trees.

“They opened fire on the team as soon as they pulled over.”
