Boko Haram terrorists have reportedly killed seven Nigerian soldiers in an ambush in Borno state.

WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that the soldiers died after an improvised explosive device planted by Boko Haram terrorists exploded in Borno state, Nort-east Nigeria.

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

According to PREMIUM TIMES, 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.

Troops of the Nigerian Armed forces have suffered many attacks from the Boko Haram terrorists.

Groups like Boko Haram and the Islamic State’s West Africa Province have terrorised Nigeria’s North-east geopolitical zone for more than a decade.

This has led to the death of thousands of soldiers and civilians and has displaced thousands of residents.

Despite repeated attacks on troops and vulnerable citizens, the government has continued to claim that the terrorists have been defeated.

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
