Bombs discreetly buried under the soil by Boko Haram elements have caused the demise of security operatives battling the group in the north-east.
The death has been announced of Bagoyi Gana Monday (Vice Chairman, Civilian JTF Dikwa) and Bukar Kellube Banga (Chairman, Vigilantes Dikwa) who lost their lives after stepping on Boko Haram mines on their way back from a security operation in Dikwa, Borno State.
The duo have been pivotal in protecting the lives of the ordinary masses from Boko Haram.
Boko Haram has been a torn on the flesh of Nigerians in its 7-year reign that has caused the death of over 20,000 people while over 2 million have been displaced.
