Not fewer than 30 people have been killed while the military formation in Ajiri, Mafa Local Government Area of Borno State, was dislodged after suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked the village, Daily Trust reports.

It was learnt that the outlawed group stormed Ajiri village at about 8:30 pm Monday, shooting sporadically as civilians fled into the bushes.

According to a security source, who disclosed that the attackers in their hundreds with more than 30 gun trucks mounted with anti aircraft guns, overpowered the military and civilian JTF after about an hour of a gun battle.

A top source revealed that five soldiers were killed in the attack, the paper stated.

“It was a bad night for our troops in Ajiri. The terrorists came in their hundreds.
