A least a soldier lost his life when a detachment of Nigerian soldiers fighting Boko Haram were involved in an accident on Thursday on their way to rescue people who were about to be terrorized by the insurgent group.



The troops were on their way to rescue travelers attacked by Boko Haram along Maiduguri-Damaturu road.

It was gathered that the specific area is the Auno – Jakana axis.

The route, which links neighboring states Borno and Yobe, is usually targeted by terrorists.

The military personnel were speeding to ensure they get to the scene of the attack before the sect members flee.

A video of the incident showed trucks moving in a convoy and then a loud bang after one of them crashed.

Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director of Army Public Relations could not be reached as at press time.
