The Boko Haram Takfiri terrorist group claims it has killed 20 soldiers and wounded dozens of others during an attack on military positions in northeastern Nigeria.

The casualties occurred during “fierce clashes” on Sunday when the group “stormed a joint position of the armies of Nigeria and Niger” in the town of Ghashghar in northeast Borno State, according to a statement released by the terrorist group.

ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram killed 20 Nigerian soldiers and wounded dozens more in an attack in the northeastern Borno State.

A community leader described the surprise attack on the Nigerian military as they were ‘taken off guard.’

“Boko Haram launched an attack with heavy guns and rocket-propelled grenades on the soldiers. The attackers came in eight vehicles,” said the leader, who was speaking on condition of anonymity.

“The soldiers suffered huge casualties because they were taken off-guard. They never anticipated such an attack,” he added.

Boko Haram is receiving some of its arms and ammunition from corrupt Nigerian officials the latest reports have suggested, without giving a motive.

    There won’t be many cockroaches to be dealt… LOL, they applied for a Daesh allegiance in March, if I remember well. Last time I heard of these “gnamondains” (sons of whores in maninka language). I bet their mothers regret having made n’golo-golo the day they inbred these bidets’ scrapes.
