Islamic State claims killings of 30 Nigerian military in an attack on January 26 in northeastern Borno state, a claim disputed by the Nigerian Army.
A Nigerian Army spokesman said an attack on troops by insurgents in the Borno village of Logomani was repelled, and eight soldiers were hurt, none with life-threatening injuries.
The information spread by Caliphate via their online Amaq news agency contradicts the statement of Nigerian officials, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on a village it referred to as Lomani, and also gave different account of the losses during the combat. (Image: illustration)
According to the other sources Boko Haram is responsible for the attack in Logomani, and Pulka.
