Militants associated with the Islamic State-backed Boko Haram group, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) have assassinated many Nigerian soldiers in Borno State.

The soldiers were killed recently during attacks on Nigerian troops along the Auno/Jakana Road, Monguno/Cross Kauwa Road, Goniri/Gorigi Road, Gur, Mainok, and Giorgi area, according to the group in a statement seen by SaharaReporters on Monday night.

The insurgents also released a photo of about seven soldiers who were reportedly killed during one of the attacks, saying that "many soldiers" were killed.


An APC, four operating vehicles, military hardware, and ammunition were also on show, which the group allegedly stole from the Nigerian Army.

In North-Eastern Nigeria, Boko Haram and its offshoot, the Islamic State West Africa Province, have killed thousands of people and displaced millions.

The Nigerian military has consistently stated that the insurgency has been largely defeated, thus downplaying any casualties.

Insurgents have been attacking soldiers in recent months, waiting for them in ambush.


Since January 2021, hundreds of soldiers and officers are said to have been killed.

During a clash in Goniri, a border village between Yobe and Borno states, at least 25 soldiers were killed when a suicide bomber, Abdullah al-Ansari, rammed an explosives-laden pick-up truck into a military convoy.


In Dikwa, Borno State, insurgents killed about 20 soldiers in February.

According to SaharaReporters, the soldiers were on patrol following credible intelligence to clear some Boko Haram elements in the region when they were ambushed by the group.
