Some military personnel of the Nigerian Army deployed to fight against Boko Haram were on Thursday involved in an accident.
It was gathered that the troops were on their way to rescue travellers attacked by Boko Haram along Maiduguri-Damaturu road.
The incident happened in the Auno–Jakana axis which links neighbouring states Borno and Yobe which is usually targeted by terrorists.
The military personnel were speeding to ensure that they get to the scene of the attack before the terrorists flee.
A video of the incident showed trucks moving in a convoy and then a loud bang after one of them crashed.
A source who spoke with Daily Post said, “There is at least one casualty. You can see the gallantry displayed. They were rushing to help fellow Nigerians, it’s unfortunate”
