A suicide bomber belonging to the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) has attacked and killed some Nigerian soldiers.
It was gathered that the bomber targeted the military convoy in Goniri, a border community between Yobe and Borno states resulting in the death of the soldiers.
SaharaReporters gathered that the insurgents also engaged the Nigerian troops in a shootout.

“There was an SVBIED (Suicide Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device) attack at Goniri yesterday, so many soldiers were killed and injured. The number of casualties is currently unknown,” a military source said.
On Sunday, the group killed five Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Borno State.
SaharaReporters gathered that the IDPs were attacked inside a forest outside Damboa town while they were searching for firewood.
ISWAP, which split from the mainstream Boko Haram in 2016, has become a dominant group, focusing on military targets and high-profile attacks, including against aid workers.
The Nigerian Army has repeatedly claimed that the insurgency had been largely defeated and frequently underplays any losses.
The terror group has caused over 40,000 deaths and displaced millions of individuals mainly in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.
