There was an overwhelming fight between the Boko Haram agitators and the Nigerian soldiers for Damboa on Wednesday.

The guerillas were said to have kept in touch with the town that they would overun it.

The radicals achieved 30 weapon trucks to attack the town, in the southern piece of Borno State.

The military/Civilian JTF men, be that as it may, drew in them in firefight.

Sources in Damboa said the military and the Civilian JTF were fight prepared for the guerillas as a result of their letter .

Sources said the guerillas assaulted the town around 5am and seemed to have an edge, yet the troopers and Civilian JTF called for air fortification which descended vigorously on the extremists.

The sources said the guerilla needed to withdraw when the battleground turned out to be “unreasonably hot for them.”

A solid security source told our journalist on the phone that the assault was monstrous yet “we are thankful to God that the military had the option to withstand and repulsed the guerillas.”

He said the radicals assaulted Damboa somewhere in the range of 5am and 6am and traded gunfire with the military and the Civilian JTF.

He stated, “Albeit barely any men of the Civilian JTF were lost, the guerillas endured vigorously and needed to escape again into the bushes.Three weapon trucks among those brought by the extremists were demolished and 18 were seized.

All endeavors to get affirmation from the military were ineffective as calls to the telephone of the representative for the Operation Lafiya Dole (the military counter-insurrection activity in the North-East), Col. Isa Ado, rang out.
