Maiduguri (Reuters) - Seven Nigerian soldiers were killed by Islamist insurgents in the state of Borno, in northern Nigeria, said Friday in Reuters a military source and two residents.

The insurgents, who, according to the sources, belonged to the Islamic State group in West Africa (ISWAP), shot a military outpost for one hour.

When the shots stopped, the soldiers went to town and were killed in an ambush, added the sources.

"(insurgents) have stretched an ambush and killed a captain, a lieutenant and five other soldiers," said the military source.

A spokesperson for the army did not respond to comment requests.

Northern Nigeria has grown for more than twelve years to violence of armed Islamist groups, which multiply massacres and kidnappings. The UN estimates that at the end of 2020, the conflict had made more than 350,000 dead.
