On February 18, Boko Haram(BH) militants in Borno State conducted an ambush on firewood merchants. During the attack, they killed 18 people. This comes as the terrorist group is starting to regain strength and territory in the North of Nigeria. It is unclear what the purpose of this attack was, but it shows that the group has regrown enough in the past year to start conducting large killings.
Several days before this brutal killing, they also sabotaged a bus that was driving between towns in Borno State. During the ambush, they beheaded three of the passengers, whose identities have not been reported on, and took another 12 people captive.
