At least two federal highway policemen were on Monday shot in Yobe State in a suspected Boko Haram ambush.

The attack reportedly occurred along Maiduguri–Damaturu highway.

The police commissioner in charge of Borno State, Mohammed Aliyu, confirmed the attack but said no officer died.

The Army Brigade in Bogozo has now been relocated to Jakana as part of measures to safeguard travelers on the Damaturu/Maiduguri highway.

Aliyu, said, “As I speak to you now, my men are in the location. I don’t have the information concerning any death. But what I know is that one of them was shot on his hand. I will give you the details as soon as I get.”
