Terror group, Islamic State, has said it has killed 11 soldiers in an attack on a barracks in Gajiganna Local Government Area of Borno State.
The group made this claim on its news agency, Amaq, on Saturday.
It released pictures of burnt barracks and dead bodies which it claimed were those of soldiers.
TheCable reports that an official of the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) has said some of the injured are undergoing treatment at the facility.
Boko Haram joined Islamic State after Abubakar Shekau, leader of the sect, pledged allegiance to the group in 2015. It, however, split with the group in 2016 over leadership issues.
In March, the IS sacked Abu Mus’ab Al-barnawi as the leader of ISWAP, a faction of Boko Haram.
Ahmad Salkida, a journalist known to have access to the leadership of Boko Haram, said the new leader of the group is Abu Abdullah Ibn Umar Albarnawi
