JUST IN: Boko Haram Ambush Kill Seven Nigerian soldiers, Many Injured in Borno State

At least seven soldiers of the Nigerian Army have been killed by an improvised explosive device planted by Boko Haram terrorists, in Borno state, Nort-east Nigeria, Kossyderrickent has learned.



The latest attack came less than a week after the appointment of a new Chief of Army Staff, Farouk Yahaya.

Mr Yahaya, a major general, was appointed last Thursday following the death of the former army chief, Ibrahim Attahiru, in a plane crash recently.

According to PremiumTimes, sources familiar with the situation said a senior military officer and four other soldiers were severely injured by the explosive.

The incident , which occurred at about 10:15am on Monday, is one amongst the many traps the terrorists have used against the military, security sources said.

The officer, a colonel, whose name was not given, was said to have been on his way from Marti, a town in Borno State to the state capital, Maiduguri, together with his 11 soldiers in a gun truck.

The wounded personnel were later moved to a military hospital in Maiduguri.
