The Nigerian soldiers who perished by the hand of the deadly Boko Haram insurgent sect, have been buried.
The gallant military heroes who gave their lives to protect their fellow Nigerians, were buried in the presence of family members who were all teary and melancholic at the sad ceremony.
Lying in coffins covered by the national colours, the soldiers were lifted to the burial ground by their surviving colleagues.
The photos were released by Support Nigerian Military, a page dedicated to reporting military activities in Nigeria,
The page wrote: “MASS BURIAL FOR OUR FALLEN GALLANT SOLDIERS
