Jihadist fighters linked to the Islamic State group on Friday, September 25, killed 15 security personnel in an ambush on the convoy of the Borno State governor, Babagana Umara Zulum.

According to the Agence France Presse (AFP), eight policemen, three soldiers, and four members of a government-backed militia were killed in the attack which occurred near the town of Baga on the shores of Lake Chad.

It was gathered that the insurgents opened fire with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades as the convoy was passing through a village close to the headquarters of the Multinational Joint Task Force, a military coalition of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
