According to Premiumtimes, 17 additional bodies of gallant Nigerian soldiers who lost their lives while preventing Boko Haram insurgnts from overrunning their base, on Thursday evening, have been recovered by a search and rescue team.
The soldiers were attacked at their base in Zari Village and at least two officers and 46 soldiers have now been confirmed killed in the attack. The attack is said to be the deadliest against a unit since Boko Haram resumed its attacks against military formations in July.
