About 850 Soldiers Shortlisted For A Counter-terrorism Escaped Death. by DonXavi(m): 10:51am On Sep 16, 2014
About 850 soldiers shortlisted for a counter-terrorism course at the Nigerian Army Training Centre in Kontagora, Niger State narrowly escaped death when they were ambushed by suspected members of the outlawed Boko Haram islamist sect.

Four of them were however seriously injured in the incident which took place at a location between Okene and Lokoja, Kogi State on Sunday night.

A security source said on Monday that the soldiers were men of the 322 Artillery Battalion, and the Fourth Brigade Garrison, Ekeunwa, Benin in Edo State.

The PUNCH learnt that the 850 soldiers were expected to give fillip to the ongoing counter-terrorism operation in Borno and Adamawa states on completion of the counter- insurgency course.

Our source said there were suspicions that the attackers were insurgents because of the intensity of the gunfire directed at the vans conveying the soldiers from both sides of the road.
================================
Let us assume these were insurgents and the soldiers fought them off...but how can 850 soldier be travelling at the same time with an objective probably known to BH...surely some one must have tipped them off

When we were told that we have them infiltrated in the armed forces, people kept pointing at the President instead of looking at the merit of what he said

who told BH that the convoy has moved? The same man that gives the BH the coordinates of our attacking troops, leading them into ambushes ?
