At least 13 Boko Haram militants were killed when troops thwarted an attack by the terror group in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno, the army said on Friday.

The attack by Boko Haram was thwarted by Nigerian troops and Chadian forces on Thursday, at Duguri Island in Borno, according to Aminu Iliyasu, a spokesman for the army in the country’s northeast region.

Four gun trucks were mounted by the Boko Haram group with the intention of overrunning the troops’ harbor position from the rear, Iliyasu said.

This sparked a gunfight, as troops repelled the attack. Four soldiers were wounded in the gunfight, he said.
