It was gathered that many soldiers sustained injuries in the attack which happened on Wednesday morning.
Two gun trucks were reportedly taken from the troops who were on a routine patrol when their convoy came under attack.
“The troops engaged the terrorist in an encounter which lasted for about 30 minutes, and as a result we lost 10 of our special forces soldiers. The insurgents took us by surprise,” one source told TheCable.
“Our wounded soldiers have been taken to Mile 4, while those killed have been transported back to Maiduguri.”
Sagir Musa, army’s spokesman, did not immediately respond to a message seeking development over the attacks.
