Soldiers missing as Army confirms Boko Haram Attack

The spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sani Usman, has revealed that several soldiers have been declared missing after Boko Haram terrorists on Monday evening attacked their location at Gashigar, a border area with Niger Republic in the northern part of Borno State.

Usman said though the troops did their best to defend the location, their efforts were in vain.

“In the process, 13 soldiers sustained injuries while some are still missing in action.”

Usman said the temporary setback made the troops to withdraw from the location.

The wounded soldiers have also been evacuated and are receiving treatment, while efforts are ongoing in the search for those missing.

Usman equally said troops have mobilized to clear the Boko Haram terrorists in the general area.
