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.”
