The Nigerian military said at least 39 soldiers died in multiple attacks in the North East last month as Boko Haram insurgents and extremists with the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) continued to stage daring attacks with new tactics.
The admission signals the government’s shift from claiming it defeated the extremist group to calls to “rise to the challenge” to keep fighting it.
