According to Sahara Reporters, over hundred Boko Haram militants entered Bulaburin village, Borno State to attack army men who escorted PHCN personnel to repair power installations devastated by terrorists six months ago in Damboa.
It was gathered by the PHCN staff on assignment in the area, where he explained to the journalists that the troops killed up to 75 militants during the clash.
He said: “I am happy today because it would have been a black day for us at Bulaburin. We went to repair Maiduguri electrical infrastructure which had been shut down by militants since July as we were working we started hearing sporadic gun shots, so the troops fought back. However, the intense fight affected our vehicles; we drove to Maiduguri on flat tyres.”
Also another information received from a security officer at the scene:
“Our soldiers climbed the telecom mast to see them, and behold they were coming in large numbers in Hilux pick up vans, motorcycles and cars. The soldiers waited for them, and when they came, they attacked them immediately,” the security source said.
