Nigerian military authorities said they have arrested Boko Haram Islamist insurgents, including three Chadians caught in a gun battle in northeast Borno State.

The insurgents attacked Madagali town in Adamawa State and Limankara village in Borno state, Akinloye Badare, spokesman for military Task Force in Borno said Sunday in an emailed statement. The military foiled the attacks, he said.

Nigerian troops also killed six Boko Haram fighters at Dissa and Patawe villages in Borno State before the exchange of gunfire with the Chadian insurgents, according to Badare. Nigeria is battling an insurgency by Boko Haram, which seeks to impose its version of Islamic rule on Africa’s most populous country.
