By Ikenga Chronicles December 30, 2016

Reports have revealed that at least 15 Boko Haram fighters were killed in Borno on Friday, December 30 after a fierce battle with the Nigerian military.

The attack came barely 24 hours after the Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau vowed in a video that he would continue to launch attacks against Nigeria despite the military takeover of Sambisa forest.

Sources said the battle began when fighters of the terror group launched a surprise attack on troop’s location in Rann, in northern Borno, shooting sporadically.

The soldiers responded promptly, killing an unknown number of the terrorists, and wounding several others.

The battle raged for over two hours, and when the dust settled, several terrorists were found dead.

One of our sources said more than 15 of the Boko Haram fighters were killed in action.

Sources however said four Nigerian soldiers were wounded in action, adding that authorities had since contacted the nearby 22 Brigade to send air ambulance to evacuate a critically injured soldier.
