Boko Haram reportedly kill 4 soldiers in Borno

Boko Haram terrorists have killed four soldiers in an ambush in Borno State, where they burnt an army base a day after killing seven civilians, according to a soldier and other witnesses, AFP news agency reports.


The Islamists opened fire on an army convoy heading to the small town of Gulumba in Borno state, the soldier added. 

The assailants were from the Boko Haram faction headed by Abu Musab Al-Barnawi, son of the sect's founder Mohammed Yusuf, the soldier added, in an account confirmed by two members of a local vigilante group.

Barnawi was appointed last year by the so-called Islamic State to replace veteran Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.
