A Nigerian soldier took to Instagram to share a video from an encounter with Boko Haram insurgents in Borno state where he was deployed to.
The soldier revealed that they lost their commander and some soldiers during the recent fight with the insurgents. He further disclosed that the counter-combat against the Boko Haram insurgents started off by 5:15pm on October 8, but ended by 11pm as they kept coming out from “nowhere”.
