June 6, 2016 – Boko Haram Kills 2 Nigerian Soldiers, Injures 8 In Niger Republic

30 soldiers from Niger and two from Nigeria were killed in a Boko Haram attack by “hundreds of assailants” on Friday on the southeastern town of Bosso close to the border with Nigeria, the Niger defence ministry said on Saturday.

It was the deadliest attack carried out in Niger by the Islamist group since April 2015, when at least 74 people, including 28 civilians, were killed at the Lake Chad island of Karamga.

“The counter-offensive conducted early this morning helped to retake control of all the positions in the city of Bosso. The situation is under control,” the defence ministry said in a statement. “A sweep is ongoing in the area with the mobilisation of all land and air means”.

Seven others from Niger and eight from Nigeria were injured in the attack that targeted a military post, according to the ministry, which reported “several deaths” among the assailants.

  3. I would very much like mr buhari to come out and explain what he meant when he said “Boko harams have been technically defeated“

    This fulani man is technically fighting Christians using religious sentiments.

    Since assumption in office, he‘s only disparching Christian soldiers to any tough war zones or to combacts boko harams.

    Just the other day, about 115 Nigerian soldiers killed JUST LIKE THAT!!! How come? No one knew the answer till date. Reports from reliable sources had it that all the slain soldiers were completely CHRISTIANS!
    God in Heaven is keenly watching…

    I take a stroll….
