Some Nigerian troops fighting the terrorist Boko Haram group in the North-East were Saturday morning caught in an explosion triggered by an improvised explosive device planted by the sect, according to Premium Times.
The troops, who are of the 122 Task Force Battalion, Pulka, in Borno State, ran into the land mine between Banki junction and Bama as they conducted escort patrol from Pulka to Maiduguri, people familiar with the matter told a reporter.
The incident occurred at 9:10 a.m. Saturday, our sources said. Five members of the detachment were badly injured, and were promptly evacuated to Bama for first aid by a patrol team from Bama.
“The distance between Bama and Banki junction is just 7km,” a military analyst told the online news platform. “There are troops deployed in-between yet Boko Haram terrorists still sneak in and plant mines.
“They sneak in at night and plant the mines. They know troops would always move in the morning.”
News of the incident in Pulka came shortly after army authorities emailed a statement saying a woman arrested wearing Nigerian Army uniforms in Abuja on Friday was an impersonator.
