Over 23 soldiers of the Nigeria Army were reportedly killed following an ambush by bandits in a remote village in Katsina state.

The gang was said to have opened fire on the soldiers as they walked through a forested part of the Jibia district in the state, according to AFP on Sunday.

“The bodies of 23 soldiers have been accounted for while some are still missing,” a military source was quoted.
