The insurgents also reportedly made away with three gun trucks and rifles seized from the soldiers, as well as millions of naira in cash.

The Source could not immediately confirm the actual amount. But it is not unusual for violent criminals to attack an armed military convoy and seize cash and weapons.

The attack came as the military intensified its push to integrate insurgents back into the society, saying the Boko Haram members turned themselves in after accepting the state’s victory in the decade-long war.
