MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria's military says it raided an insurgent camp in the northeast and launched airstrikes over two days, killing at least 50 sect members.
Military spokesman Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said Friday that the military's newly formed army division, established to quell the insurgency in the northeast, participated in the raid.
This came as residents said nine people were killed in a highway attack by the Islamic sect on Thursday at Bulabulin-Ngabura village, 50 kilometers (31 miles) north of Maiduguri, the birthplace of the Boko Haram insurgency.
Cab driver Musa Lado says he saw nine corpses along the road, including a Borno state government adviser. He said the group also abducted a man, his wife and two children along the road.
