Muhammad Abu Ali Killed By Boko Haram by Islie: 1:00pm On Nov 05, 2016
Muhammad Abu Ali, a lieutenant colonel, whom Boko Haram dreaded, is dead.

Ali led one of the army’s fiercest-ever battles with Boko Haram, in February 2015, culminating in the recapture of Baga town in Borno state.

Sani Usman, army spokeman, said he was killed in an encounter with the insurgents on Friday.

The deceased was was granted accelerated promotion from rank of major to lieutenant-colonel in September 2015, for his courageous performance in a series of the army’s engagements with Boko Haram.

Usman added that four soldiers were killed, but that troops killed 14 of the insurgents who attacked a location of the army in Borno state.

“Yesterday at about 10.00pm suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked a 119 Battalion Nigerian army location at Mallam Fatori, northern Borno state. The troops fought gallantly and repelled the attack, killing 14 Boko Haram terrorists,” he said.

“Unfortunately, we lost an officer and four soldiers, while four other soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries during the encounter. One of those killed in action, was Lieutenant Colonel Muhammad Abu Ali, the Commanding Officer of 272 Task Force Tank Battalion.”

During TheCable’s investigative trip to the theatre of war, soldiers, majority of whom have built an unwanted reputation for always criticising the army hierarchy, spoke highly of Ali’s professionalism.

One of the soldiers, who partook in the Baga operation, narrated his experience to TheCable .

“In the case Baga, when it was recaptured from Boko Haram, Abu Ali, who led that operation, told the soldiers that they should not worry, that they should only do five percent of the job, that he was going to do 95% of the job with the tanks,” he had said.

“And that was exactly what happened. He did most of the work with the tanks. He was a major at that time and his promotion after the operation was automatic because he performed very well. One smallish guy like that o.”

In the mind of irredeemable zombies, Bokoharam has been defeated.

Soldiers are killed weekly. IDP camps are blown up ..In every 2 weeks people are blown up by Bokoharam, yet Bokoharam has been defeated

Okay buhari and his team probably have looted the funds for the soldiers.
They don't have equipment. So boko haram were better armed.
It's corruption in the army.

The life of a "true hero and fearless battle commander" has been cut short by the "forces of darkness" a.k.a boko haram demonic group!

This is a very sad and painful loss to the entire Nation!

I wish him and his colleagues comfort and strength in The Hands of THE ALMIGHTY (Amen)!

Such a disheartening news! RIP to the gallant officer.

When Jonathan was there, whenever such things happened, I was always vexed. I always prayed that those (Boko Haram) guys be defeated. I never tried politicizing the war against Boko Haram even when it was obvious Jonathan wasn't ready to tackle the menace.

However, I'm surprised today that when any news of a fallen hero arises on this forum, people tend to celebrate it because of their hatred for Buhari. Buhari didn't say they've been fully defeated. But it's audible to the deaf, visible to the blind, perceivable to the anosmia and vocal to the dumb that the man has really tried. People have gone back to their villages which they deserted during Jonathan's tenure, some of the Chibok girls have been rescued. Do we expect the Boko Haram not to carry out any attack at all? For Pet' sake, this administration has done well in the fight against insurgency.

A tactically defeated Boko Haram is now killing top officers of the army.

The person who advised Buhari not to abscond after winning the elections must be found and drag through the streets naked.

Top lies from Buhari

Investors are running over themselves to invest in Nigeria (Next day 5 airlines closed shops and relocate to Ghana)

Germany is investing $3bn in Nigeria (Next day Germany replied, "We only said $300m for aids)

I am for nobody, I am for everybody (few days later, he confirm that some people that gave him 5% cannot enjoy like the others that gave him "97%"wink

And this one: Abacha never stole .......
