Boko Haram has killed tens of thousands of Nigerian military forces in its 10-year armed uprising in northern Nigeria. It is confirmed that Boko Haram fighters killed several Nigerian armed troops in an ambush laid near Goneri village in northern Yobe State in the first quarter of 2020.

The Nigerian military suffered numerous casualties in the unfortunate attack. Though the exact number of casualties was not disclosed but few respondents put the numbers at between fifty (50) and seventy-five (75). It was indicated that the ambush took place near the town of Goneri in eastern Borno State on 20 March, 2020.

Though immediately after the attack the Air Force was summoned and it raided the territory of the fighters and succeeded in killing all of them after bombarding the terrorist's hideouts.

In another deadly attack on the armed forces installations in the region on 18 and 19 March, 2020, the troops were able to fight back and escape from the ambush. Also at a place named "the Gorge", the soldiers were attacked from the rear when they were trying to advance.

Boko Haram fighters on that day inflicted heavy casualties by opening fire on the military vehicles with rocket-propelled grenades and assault weapons. Those who were able to survive among the military troops were accepted for treatment at hospitals in Damaturu and Maiduguri respectively.

A respondent (a senior Army Officer) also confirmed the attack, saying he even lost a friend and tagged the attack a huge setback for the Nigerian army. Boko Haram has killed tens of thousands in its 10-year armed uprising in northern Nigeria.

In addition, between 20th and 21st March, 2020, the fierce-looking Boko Haram terrorists killed ninety-two (92) Chadian and seventy (70) Nigerian soldiers in two separate terror attacks. A large number of respondents confirmed that about ninety-two soldiers were killed and forty-seven others got seriously injured when the insurgents attacked an army unit in Boma, a peninsula of Lake Chad that borders Nigeria.

In the same vein, President Idriss Deby of the Republic of Chad visited the scene of the ambush and attack to confirm the death toll.

Across the border, in North eastern Nigeria, dozens of soldiers died in similar ambush by Boko Haram terrorists. The Nigerian military also suffered heavy casualties in the unfortunate attack. The militants struck several military vehicles carrying explosives and ammunition, which caused a huge fire that in turn led to a high death toll, the spokesman added.

Boko Haram poses a steady threat to communities in the north-east of Nigeria and has also launched offensives in neighboring Chad, Niger and Cameroon. Since 2009, tens of thousands of people have been killed by the terrorists in the region and an estimated 2.5 million people fled their homes.
