The war against terrorism has become a flood sweeping the country. The Nigerian Army is trying its best in the fight against insurgency but it seems as if their best is not enough as insecurity is becoming worrisome and unbearable. People are living in fear. The mindless attacks carried out by these criminal elements have rendered some people homeless and hopeless in this country.
According to a report on Vanguard News, Dozens of military troops who were on their way to Maiduguri on Friday were ambushed by suspected members of Boko Haram linked to the ISWAP group, reliable sources told their Journalists. The troops were attacked when they were going to Marte-Dikwa Council Area in Maiduguri when the insurgents fired rocket launchers at them.
A reliable source told Vanguard Correspondent that 16 soldiers lost their lives in the ambush, but it was later learned on Saturday evening from another source that about 30 soldiers were killed with others sustained gunshot injuries.
