Army spokesman Col. Sani Usman said the attack was a “temporary setback” carried out by “remnants of Boko Haram” that forced the soldiers to ‘withdraw from the location’.

Usman said an operation was in progress to find the missing troops and “clear the Boko Haram terrorists at the general area.”



  1. It’s obvious these criminals still find hiding places in Nugerian border countries like Especially Niger Republic,may God grant our soldiers the wisdom to root them out as we are not sure what the Nigerien government is doing really.
