The soldiers were reportedly on their way to rescue travellers attacked by Boko Haram terrorists along Maiduguri-Damaturu Road when the unfortunate incident happened.

If these accidents are caused by a lack of proper training, then much of the training required to certify a soldier to drive a vehicle or operate sophisticated machines is ad hoc, and troops must be regularly reassessed on their driving ability or given opportunities to improve their skills through advanced courses.
