On Friday, it was reported that an army colonel and 20 soldiers were killed in an ambush by the militants in Yobe State while another colonel, captain, and six others were also killed in Borno State due to the state’s ongoing fight with Boko Haram.
In the past two months, at least 52 people have been killed in the battle.
“We are worried not only about the increasing attacks but also by the humanitarian situation that was being created by both Boko Haram and the Islamic State for West Africa Province (ISWAP) in the north-east,” said the senate.
Although the military has managed to limit the disputes and fights in three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe in the north-east, hundreds of soldiers have been killed since Boko Haram began focusing on military bases in July 2018.
So far, thousands of people have been displaced from their homes due to the violent attacks.
