Ten days after the deadly attack on Nigerian soldiers by Boko Haram insurgents at Metele, Borno state, the Nigerian Army, led by Brig Gen SI Igbinomwanhia COS HQ 6 Div, Wednesday paid a condolence visit to the widow of one of the late soldiers, Lieutenant Colonel Sakaba.

Sakaba, who was the commander of the 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele, Abadam Local Government Area, was killed along with scores of soldiers on Sunday, 18 November 2018.
Although the Army is yet to disclose the details and number of casualties, unofficial reports have it that at least 100 troops were killed.

An officer among the troop attacked at Metele told foreign news agency Reuters that “the insurgents took us unawares. We lost about 100 soldiers. It is a huge loss.”
