At least two Nigerian soldiers were killed in an ambush by Boko Haram jihadists targeting a civilian convoy close to the border with Cameroon, military and militia sources told AFP on Friday.

The jihadists opened fire on a convoy of traders under military escort outside a village near the northeastern town of Banki on Thursday, killing two military escorts and injuring seven traders, according to the sources.

“The (Boko Haram) terrorists ambushed the convoy around 18:00 as it approached Banki and killed two of the soldiers providing cover for the convoy,” a military officer said.

“The attackers fired indiscriminately and seven civilians were injured,” the officer said.
