JUST IN: Boko Haram: Real Figure Of Killed Soldiers In Metele Is 23 — Army Tells Nigerians

The Nigerian Army has said that 23 of its personnel were killed and 31 others wounded when Boko Haram terrorists attacked troops locations on Nov. 18 at Metele in Northern Borno.

This is contrary to the figure of 44 to 100 army personnel alleged as being casualties in the attack.

In a statement issued by Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman on behalf of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, on Wednesday, the army, however, said that between Nov. 2 and Nov. 17, the insurgents attacked troops’ positions at Kukawa, Ngoshe, Kareto and Gajiram.

He said troops repelled those attacks but 16 soldiers were killed, while 12 others sustained injuries in those incidents.
