The Islamic Sect ISIS has claimed responsibility for the death of eight soldiers in Yobe, after an attack.
At least eight soldiers were killed in heavy fighting when Boko Haram raided a military camp and looted food from a village in Yobe.
A civilian was also killed, while five persons sustained injuries in the tragic incident.
In a statement on Thursday, the militant group said its members organised the operation.
“The fighters took three four-wheel-drive vehicles and others mounted with rifles and heavy weaponry and various ammunition,” the statement said.
A resident of Sassawa village said, “The boys (insurgents) had a field day. After the attack, they forced many shops and stores open and carted food items away.”
