The major highway between Maiduguri to Damboa has been closed as troops of Operation Hadin Kai engage Boko Haram members in a fierce shootout.

Press gathered that suspected members of Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, Boko Haram terrorists group, ambushed troops of Operation Hadin Kai escorting commercial vehicles from Maiduguri to Damboa in Falouja village in Borno State, northeast Nigeria.

A local source, who escaped the attack told Zagazola Makama, a counter insurgency expert and security analyst in the Lake Chad that the ambush which triggered a heavy exchange of gunfire between the terrorists and the soldiers, forced the passengers in the convoy to scamper for safety.
