One soldier and a civilian have been killed by a stray bullet as Boko Haram attacked Nigerian troops in Borno State.
The incident, PRNigeria learnt, occurred when Boko Haram terrorists attacked a military formation in Njimtilo on Monday.
It was also gathered that the terrorists had sneaked close to the military formation metres to the Borno State University on foot and began shooting sporadically.
