Nigerian military death toll hits 48 in weekend attack by Boko Haram

Underscoring the ongoing lethality of the group even against traditional military targets, Boko Haram attacked and overran a military base in northeastern Nigeria, killing at least 48 Nigerian soldiers. The Nigerian government has repeatedly claimed the “defeat” of the group. The militants suffered unknown losses as they overtook and then pillaged the base for weapons and supplies before being driven out by troops and aerial support.
