Nigeria-Secturity: Nigeria: Eleven soldiers killed in an attack in Benue
Abuja (Reuters) - A officer of the army and ten soldiers were killed Thursday in the state of Benue, in the east of Nigeria, in what a spokesman described as an unauthorized attack.
Civilians, fearing the soldiers looking to debuscate the authors of the attack, fleeing the local Konshisha government, where the house of a local chef had been completely burned, reported sources in Reuters.
The spokesperson for the Army, Mohammed Yerima, said the soldiers had been initially declared missing as they carried out a routine operational task, but a research and rescue team then found the bodies.
"Efforts are underway to find the authors of this heinous crime in order to bring them to justice," he said in a statement.
Mohammed Yerima did not respond immediately to other questions about the attack.
Soldiers patrol in the region in part because of the clashes between the nomadic farmers and livestock farmers who killed thousands of people and moved half a million people over the last decade, according to the estimates of the French medical organization doctors without borders.
