Graphic Photos - Boko Haram Members Killed In Maiduguri Today

Boko Haram today launched a daring attack on an army base -Giwa Barack- in Maiduguri by water and land in an attempt to free members detained in the barrack.

The sect members drove in a convoy to attack the barrack and also reportedly penetrated the barrack through a river channel at the back of the base.  Several large explosions were heard throughout the city during the duration of the raid.

A terse statement by the spokesperson for the Defense Headquarters, Major General Chris Olukolade, said that Nigerian soldiers were able to repel the attacks.
He said, "The attack has been successfully repelled with heavy human casualty on the terrorists. Some of the victims of the terrorists’ fire in their efforts to break into the detention facility included those they came to rescue.  

"Many of the terrorists and their weapons have been captured.  Four soldiers were wounded and are being treated.  Hot pursuits by land and air operations are ongoing along with cordon and search of surrounding localities."

The military disclosed that the terrorists' camps have been destroyed and many insurgents killed.
