This comes just days after the burial of 19 soldiers who the Army said were killed by Boko Haram during the November 18 attack on Metele, Abadam LGA of Borno State.
They were buried at the military cemetery of the Maimalari Cantonment in Maiduguri, the state capital.
Borno State has remained one of the hotspots of insurgency with several attacks, claiming the lives of many innocent citizens as well as security operatives.
Overwhelmed by the spate of attacks in the state, Governor Kashim Shettima on Monday broke down in tears during a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
He, however, said the leadership of the state had not lost hope in the President’s ability to win the war against insurgents and restore the peace.
