    THE Nigerian Army on Monday said troops, in conjunction with the Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai, killed 12 suspected Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa Province members during a gun duel in Borno State.

    The suspected terrorists were said to have attempted an attack on one of the military operational bases in Bula Yobe, but fled following the resistance from the troops.
