Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar says even as Nigeria focuses on the battle against Coronavirus, the Nation shouldn’t lose track of the pending war with the Boko Haram insurgence. He disclosed this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday Night.
He said, “The ambush and killing of scores of our gallant soldiers by terrorists in Gorgi Village, Borno State is a reminder that even as we are focused on the battle against coronavirus, we must never lose track of the Boko Haram war.”
This comes as a result of the conflicting reports regarding the latest killing of soldiers in Borno State. However, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) confirmed that not less than 47 soldiers were killed by members of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
“During consolidation, they (the troops) were ambushed by elements of Boko Haram terrorists. Sadly, we suffered some casualties in the unfortunate attack,” the director for defence information said.
