According to the ministry’s account, “hundreds of assailants” attacked a military post in the south-eastern town of Bosso, on the Nigerian border, on Friday night.

A counter-attack on Saturday morning allowed government troops to retake all positions in Bosso, the ministry says.

Niger’s defense ministry also held that there were several dead and injured “on the enemy’s side”.

Boko Haram has not commented on the Nigerien defense ministry’s statement about casualties on the sect’s militants.

This is just a recent attack on troops fighting against the sect that declared it allegiance to ISIS.
