Boko Haram kills 5 traders in northeast Nigeria

At least five traders have been killed by Boko Haram in an ambush on a highway in northeast Nigeria that was recently reopened after coming under repeated attacks from the group.

A convoy of vehicles carrying Nigerian immigration officials and a group of traders were travelling from Gamboru, on the border with Cameroon, to the city of Maiduguri when they came under fire.

A military source said three immigration officers were hit and injured during exchange of fire but drove off towards Maiduguri, leaving the traders behind,” an army officer told AFP on condition of anonymity
