Pictures have emerged of some of the soldiers who were killed by Boko Haram operatives during a mission to rescue abducted oil explorers in Borno.
We had reported that the victims were abducted near a village called Jibi in Gubio local government area on Tuesday, July 25, while moving alongside some personnel of the Civilian-JTF.
A day after the abduction, the Nigerian army in a press statement on Wednesday, July 27, by its spokesman, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman, claimed that all the NNPC staff abducted in the Tuesday’s ambush had been rescued.
We gathered that no less than 12 soldiers in an earlier report were killed while at least four out of 12 staff of the University of Maiduguri equally lost their lives.
The names of the deceased are: Dr Milicus Joseph from Geology Dept, Idris Abubakar Njodi and Dr Daniel Birma of Dept of Soil Science.
Some pictures of the soldiers who lost their lives were exclusively sent to NAIJ.com and that their families are still trying to come to terms with their tragic loss.
