7 soldiers killed while over 100 boko haram members killed in Boko Haram attack in Yobe

7 soldiers lost their lives while over 100 boko haram members were killed after the sect group made a futile attempt on 120 Task Force Battalion troops located at Goniri, Yobe State yesterday morning. A statement from the Nigerian Army's acting director Public relations, Col. Sani Usman, states that one officer and 8 soldiers were injured during the attack.

Weapons recovered from the sect members include 1 General Purpose Machine Gun, 2 Rocket Propelled Grenades, 9 AK-47 rifles and Belted rounds of 7.62 (NATO) ammunitions. Others were various wires used for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), 7 Primed IEDs, different types of Spanners and a Torch Light.

In a related development, troops of 21 Brigade on fighting patrol from Bama to Ngurosoye, destroyed Boko Haram terrorists camps along that axis. While on patrol, the brave soldiers came across some of the terrorists hideouts that also served as fabricating area for IEDs and the terrorists’ training area. Another patrol along Bama-Kawuri axis discovered and exhumed IEDs and wires for detonation.
