Nigerian Soldiers Kill 76 Deadly Boko Haram Terrorists Who Attacked Army Positions

Seventy-six Boko Haram terrorists, among others, trying to overrun Nigeria’s military formation in Metele, near Kangarwa in Borno have been killed.

In what was a double blow to the terrorists, Chadian troops also killed another 48 today.

According to the Nigerian Army Twitter posts, the gallant troops of the 157 Battalion overwhelmed the terrorists, with superior firepower, as they attempted to attack Nigerian positions on 8 October.

“The sustained superior firepower of the troops led to the neutralisation of 76 BHTs”, the army said in an update today.

“Unfortunately, the Nigerian Army lost seven soldiers while 16 were wounded in action”.

“The Chief of army staff, Lt. General Buratai has commiserated with the families of the deceased and directed that the wounded be given adequate medical attention”.

In Chad, eight soldiers and 48 Boko Haram militants were killed in clashes on Wednesday, officials said.

The early morning attack took place in Kaiga Kindji in the Lake Chad region, army spokesman Azem Agouna said, adding that 11 other soldiers were wounded.

The Boko Haram terrorists also regularly launch offensives in Niger and Cameroon.

Since 2009, tens of thousands of people in the region have died at the hands of the Sunni fundamentalists and an estimated 2.5 million people fled their homes.

The group’s goal is to enforce a strict interpretation of Islamic law, or sharia.
