Breaking: 5 Soldiers Injured As Troops Encounter IED Explosion In Borno

Troops of the Nigerian Army engaged in the war against terrorist group Boko Haram in North-East on Saturday morning encountered an explosion triggered by an improvised explosive device planted by the sect.

According to Premium Times, five soldiers suffered fatal injuries during the explosion which happened at about 9:10am between Banki junction and Bama as they conducted escort patrol from Pulka to Maiduguri.

A military analyst said, “The distance between Bama and Banki junction is just 7km.

“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.”
