Suspected Nigerian Terrorists Kill Two Soldiers Deployed to Mali

Suspected terrorists fired at a convoy of soldiers yesterday in the Nigerian central state of Kogi on their way to join the West African Force in Mali, leaving two dead, military authorities said.

“The terrorists laid ambush for the soldiers on their way to Mali and fired gunshots and explosives that killed two of our men,” Bola Koleoso, a spokesman for the military, said today by telephone from Kogi. Four soldiers were wounded and were taken to hospital while the rest continued the journey, Koleoso said.

Nigeria increased its contribution to the force in the desert north of Mali to 1,200 because the crisis may spill over into Nigeria if not brought under control, President Goodluck Jonathan told lawmakers Jan. 17.

Africa’s top oil producer and most populous nation is battling an insurgency by Boko Haram that has killed hundreds of people since 2009. The Islamist group has claimed responsibility for bomb and gun attacks in the mainly Muslim north and in Abuja, the Nigerian capital.
