Northern Nigeria has experienced its fair share of attacks by the terror group that has led to the death of military personnel and residents.

On March 28, a Kaduna-bound train was attacked by gunmen, which led to the death of eight people while several others were kidnapped.

Some of the abducted people are currently in the custody of the terrorists.

Days after the train attack, 11 soldiers were killed in an attack by gunmen on a military base in Birnin Gwari LGA of Kaduna state.
