The Nigerian Army has finally provided numbers on casualty figures arising from a recent Boko Haram attack. The army said it had lost 39 soldiers contrary to reports that over 100 soldiers were killed.

The attack in Metele, located in the northeastern Borno State was widely reported as the deadliest by insurgents in recent times.

The attack was claimed by Islamic State in West Africa Province, ISWAP. The Air Force has since bombarded terrorist locations in the Lake Chad region.



The army in an earlier statement said it had not reported on the incident because it was supposed to inform next of kin of the slain soldiers before making a public announcement.
