A mine planted by Boko Haram Islamists near the town of Banki, on the Nigerian border with Cameroon has been hit by a vehicle on Monday, killing four people including a mother and her two children.

According to an undisclosed source, the vehicle involved was said to be part of a convoy heading to Maiduguri under military escort when it hit the mine as the insurgents opened fire a “few kilometres” from the border town of Banki.

“The explosion killed four people including a mother and her two children while nine people were severely injured,” a militia assisting the military in fighting Boko Haram in Banki.”

“The injured were taken to a Unicef-run health facility in Banki where they are receiving treatment,” he said.

A driver who gave his first name as Abdullah and was part  of the convoy, revealed that the explosion was preceded by a barrage of gunfire on them from Boko Haram fighters lurking at the side of the highway.

Escorting troops returned fire and repelled the attack “but one of the vehicles hit a mine the attackers planted,” the driver added.

“The vehicle exploded. Four people inside were killed and nine were injured.”
