Boko-HaramDozens of civilians and soldiers were on Tuesday killed when terrorist group, Boko Haram, struck again in a community in Borno State, a Nigerian military source has informed Sahara Reporters.

According to the source, some members of the terrorist group arrived in the town of New Marte in a convoy of cars and sports utility vehicles and launched an attack on a military base and civilian targets, leaving some soldiers and scores of civilians dead.

“They attacked as a heavy group, shooting at both civilians and soldiers. Then one of their Golf cars laden with explosives sped and hit one of our APC [anti-personnel carrier] tanks. The collision caused a big explosion that killed many people and seriously injured many more”, the source, who spoke under the condition of anonymity said.

He added: “Our soldiers killed a number of them. There were so many of them, ‎so there was shooting from all angles”.

According to the military source, the major cause of casualty was the explosion that occurred after the insurgents’ car rammed into an APC. “The multiple explosions led to the deaths of dozens of both civilians and soldiers nearby”, he said.

The military source further disclosed that the insurgents also set houses ablaze.

As of the time of publishing this report, there was no official confirmation of this latest attack from the Defense Headquarters in Abuja.
