The military claimed to have killed 207 Boko Haram fighters after the terror group attacked a detention center at a military base in Maiduguri and freed "dozens" of militants. Sources claimed that security forces managed to capture at least 50 escaping Boko Haram militants, including Arabs, Malians, and Chadians. At least four civilians, as well as some of the escaped Boko Haram detainees, were killed, and four Nigerian soldiers were wounded. The military also claimed to have seized a large quantity of terrorist weapons near Lake Chad, and to have arrested Boko Haram militants fleeing the Maiduguri attack.
