|Battle of Kodunga|
|Part of the Boko Haram insurgency|
|Casualties and losses|
Boko Haram is an Islamic militant group, who pledge allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Boko Haram has been carrying out attacks in Nigeria since 2009, and more recently in Cameroon, Chad and Niger as well. Past estimates have stated that Nigeria held the highest number of terrorist attacks in 2013.
In September 2014, military reports said that Boko Haram fighters attempted to capture the town of Konduga. Nigerian infantry successfully repelled the attack through a combined assault of ground soldiers and aerial attacks. 100 Boko Haram fighters were confirmed killed, while only a "handful" fled the battle, with most of the dead being beyond recognition. The armed forces proceeded to seize anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled grenades, several Hilux vehicles and motorcycles, and an armored personal carrier (APC).
After the battle, Nigerian Defense Headquarters made a public statement, reassuring residents of Maiduguri and its surrounding areas of safety from Boko Haram.
