The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 12:02pm On Feb 02, 2017
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so
tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism
and war that the bright daybreak of peace and
brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe
that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have
the final word. that's a proverb from Martin Luther king Jr, there's an adage that says that only the dead that has seen the end of a war..what am about to share is a true life experience from a mentor, a hero who came. back from battle front in Borno state, I don't know if this is the right section and am not a writer I just want to share an experience from a soldier who just came back so that we Nigerians should know what they go through just to make us sleep while they are awake guiding this nation, I will be uploading from vidoes and pictures too

It all started on 2010 he was deployed to Maiduguri, to help fight the boko haram insurgency,he accepted in good faith and left on good faith knowing that it's his job to defend the nation, according to him the boko haram war is a battle of gradual success, but it will be over someday
At the initial stage of the insurgency when they were still in maiduguri town and killing mostly Christian,southerners and Muslims who spoke against them, that that was one of the period of fighting the insurgency cos they might be raiding and they will be shot from a compound and when they try to enter the compound they will tell them no entry and even if they force there way into the place, they will never see the person or they would hide their riffle for them when you enter the place you will see them all eating together as if they are all one,He said that was one of the biggest challenges they faced at the initial stages until they were overpowered on maiduguri town..

After boko haram were defeated in maiduguri, they relocated to other parts of the state and sambisa, they sent words to other neighbouring countries, that Muslims and Christians are fighting and the Nigerian Army is helping the Christians,so they sent many fighters from Libya, Chad, Niger and Cameroon, he said its was a confession they got from one of there top commands they caught, that mant of the fighters couldn't speak English nor Hausa, that most of the foreigners sent were responsible for majority of the massacres of civilians and over running of some of the army posts..

I asked him how are those fighters motivated, he said There commander been Shekau promised them that they shouldn't fear death, that they would be rewarded with seven virgins in heaven and he is supposed to be the last to go, and if they allow him to go die first, he's going to seal gates of heaven,
they normal take hard drugs like the once give to horses to run very fast, whenever they face the bh boys in battle they hardly retreat

I have been trying to upload a video of showing some of the many atrocities they committed in Bama, there was a particular news about hundreds of corpse been found in a river in Bama and also how they massacred a boarding school students, and dead bodies been thrown into a well, I read about all this in Nairaland and I have seen the video but couldn't upload it here cos it's 32mb, he showed me some pics of his fallen comrades, bullet wounds he sustained but I wouldn't upload any of the pics, cos he rejected the idea because he said it's a sign of disrespect to his fallen comrades.
ABOUT INFORMANTS
I will be lying to you if a say they don't have informant and information about every movement within the army, in fact most times he's afraid the way they gets there informations,and they are very accurate.For example there was a time around 2014 when he was undergoing a training in a Local government in Borno, that in army post he was there for like 3 weeks undergoing the training, so they told him to go and release a soldier who disobeyed order from Gaurd room, he asked them if they had any guard room here? they said yes and they showed him where the guard room is and where they normally keep suspected bh members, .in about 2weeks time, they were attacked and the bh went straight to the guard room killed 2 soldiers blow off door and released there members and left, he was surprised that him that stays here hardly knew they had a guard room here this guys just came attacked and went straight to there but he said some soldiers are behind thats and they don't know all of them yet.
Re: The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 10:59pm On Feb 03, 2017
Whenever bh attcaks, they are usually out numbered like if there are 40 soldiers in a particular post, when bh want to attack they would come like 200hundred plus, which makes the army usually out numbered and before they would call in for reinforcement, it's usually late and they would be through with their agenda.
BH has a chief priest who gives them spiritual guidance, who tells them when to for a battle and when not to go, whenever he tells them to go for a battle no matter how prepared the army is, they must succeed,if the chief priest didn't approve any attack and they go for it, they must suffer great casualty, sometimes when they get a tip off of impending attack and they lay ambush for them, they will not show up, and sometimes even if they do show up, they will be confusion within the army and they will not crush them As planned, all this was happening until, they caught a high ranking member, who told them, Bh normally give Human sacrifice, before any attack, they would sacrifice someone, so that they would be invisible by the army, sometimes in battle the way bh they attack it will be as if they are not human, no matter how you kill them, they will still keep running to you.That it's only the grace of God that he's alive to share his experience.
Re: The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 10:36am On Feb 04, 2017
On his first escape from bh,they were ambushed on there way to a town, when they were attacked from all angles shooting at them,when he took.cover away from his team,as they were exchanging fire, he.lost track with his team and they started pursuing after.him inside the bush as he was shooting and running away from he stumbled and fell down,so they shoot him but missed, he stood up and ran away from there,when everything was calm and over, he was terrified cos he taught he was going to died that day but God in heaven saved him, he tried to contact his.team but he couldn't find his phone,the phone fell down when he stumbled and bh boys picked up the phone,he was man alone and away from his team, when they tried reaching his number the bh picked up the phone and said they are bh members and he has been killed( they spoke in Hausa)that if they are not afraid they should come and collect his phone, his team mobilized for any search and rescue and that's was how he was safe for that day,when he got to base,his family members were calling his colleagues, because whoever calls his number they will pick up and say he has been killed,his family members were worried and calling but he called them back and told them he's alive, they only took his phone, that was when, they calmed down.he later called his number and they picked and told him to come and collect it, they gave a location and they went there but couldn't find anyone there.

I need help on howto upload two videos they are above the max mb to upload, I need people to see.the atrocities commited by boko haram, the massacres and also know that we Nigerians need to stop this internet fighting, Apc and Pdp propaganda, Our soldiers are been killed on daily basis,they need our help, our prayers and support, they don't sleep with both eyes closed cos of surprised attacks, they stay awake for us but we choose to call them coward sometimes when they retreats leaving there weapons, they are no coward, they are brave and strong, I use to think they are cowards but, most times there plans are been sold out by someone,most successful attack by bh are cos of betrayal, they usually attack base, when they either withdrawal some troops or they are not up to full strength,and when they attack, they are out numbered 4 or 5 to 1.
DIABOLICAL MEANS BY SOLDIERS
I asked if him or other of his colleagues don't normally do juju or jazzz(lol) he laughed and said some usually believe in juju, that he's alive today sharing this experience with me is by the Grace of almighty God,not by his own strength or skills but God guidance, some soldiers do wear charms,magical rings and amulet, but when it fails, the person will be killed cos all God gives 24 hours a day protection.
Re: The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 6:19pm On Feb 04, 2017
Pls Nl sometimes I feel discouraging updating this experience, cos its as if am talking to myself, try and comment to keep the spirit moving and to the super mods and inferior mods I know you will never see this, had it been I created a topic about davido baby mama, how I killed 30 snakes a day,wizkid baby man, it will be promoted, or I called someone ofe mmanu or flat head they will respond to action and ban me, I have been on nairaland for more than seven years but for the past 2years the kind of topics they encourage has been pathetic.

Not all Muslims are bad, but some are just extremist, he was even saved severely by Muslims, in war there's no Muslim or Christian, when they attack they shoot both muslim and Christian, when they bomb, both are involved.

ESCAPE FROM DEATH N BH
He said sometimes we do read about Bh attacking a Village without the army doing anything about it,
Not that they don't want to help but some of those villagers are wicked and heartless.
There was a time they got information about bh guys attacking a Village few kilometers away from there base,so they mobilized to lay an ambush for bh,to surprise them so that they would retreat and go back cos when they're going for an attack and they surprise them, they usually get confused and retreat. back, everything was set the morale was high and they set out in the night he was with his right hand man Ezekiel, he loves the guy so much and they are from the same state, they were still discussing about family, mission and life, they saw this as just an easy mission of 2-4hours and they are back to base and continue with other things without knowing they are going in for a real battle.
Re: The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 1:19pm On Feb 06, 2017
when they got to the location where they're to lay ambush,they set out in different locations waiting for them to pass through and they would attack,but they didn't know that they had gone and informed the bh members of there plan, instead of them coming through the supposed route they were waiting for them, they diverted and the next thing he heard was gunshot at him, he look back and he saw many bh members shooting at them,they have surrounded all the area living them in the middle he and his.friend returned fire and ran for as they were running they shoot his friend and he fell he tried to help but no way, the fire power was too much at him they pursued him but they couldn't him he shoot some of them and took cover inside a forest nearby which the bh members have already surrounded,he saw two people inside place, he was afraid cos he didn't know if they are bh members or his fellow soldiers and he low on bullet, remaining 6 out of 60, so he picked courage and if they are bh members he will definitely killed one or two before they kill or they will be his fellow soldiers, he mad a sign to know if they were soldiers, one came towards him, the other remained behind, when the man got close to him,he that he was a fulani man,the fulani man told not to go near the.village cos he ran with his family from there and hide his family inside this bush, that those villagers are bh members they told bh about were they laid the ambush waiting for them,going to the village, they will kill him, so the best option he had was to stay there and pray they didn't come to his direction,the fulani man pull his long black cloth to wear and cover his uniform and gun and left him,as he was there he could see them moving around but couldn't see him, be taught maybe he's in the spirit world seeing all this, cos he if bullet enters your body at first you not know, until the.bleeding poison of the bullet circulates before.you feel something, he pick his phone know if.he's alive called wife and asked.about his children she said they're fine he didn't tell her anything about his situation, he called his brother too,he tried calling his friend and bh picked the call, then he knew his friend been killed, he just there looking at them waiting his turn to die but they couldn't find him, they went and ransacked the village burn down the MTN masts there, they stayed until the early hours before they left, that was when he saw there numbers how they circled them in the centre,they were coming out from different angles,when reinforcement came they him and they went for search rescue,they his dead friend, he was shoot in head,they took his dead body, some injured and went back to base,he just knew that God alive, I asked him,why didn't they kill those people in the village, he right will let them rest.

On his last attempt with bh, when he got signal for redeploy to cross river state, he was happy and sad, sad cos the battle is not yet over, happy cos he will be closer to his family,on his way to maiduguri on that day,to receive a letter of redeployment,he didn't leave on time although the journey was like hours, they got to a military checkpoint, and the soldiers there told them the road has been closed for that day,cos he was with a public transport,they had the option of going back to the nearest town not far from there position or staying with them, cos they were 3 soldiers and other civilians in the vehicle, he decided to stay with the soldiers at the check point, while the other soldiers said they were returning to the near by town to relax, he wanted to join them, but something told him to stay at that checkpoint cos it was getting dark,so he told them to go that he would see them in the morning,they left not up to 15 minutes later, they heard gunshot and explosion, the soldiers rushed to the place of attack and it was the vehicle that left them, the two soldiers and some civilians were killed, he was supposed to be in the vehicle but he didn't know what told him not to go back,he returned to maiduguri after a week or , he received his letter of redeployment to cross river state.
Re: The War Against Insurgency..a True Life Story by nely(m): 10:33am On Feb 09, 2017
I asked if they do bring back the bodies of fallen soldiers and if they pays compensation to the families of the victims, he said they use to bring the.bodies back before but they have stopped of recent cos it usually brings confusion, and they pay compensation to the families but the stressing is to much, sometimes if you are unlucky they will not pay you, if a soldiers dies in battlefield if you're lucky they will contact the family or next of kin but if you are not,they will not contact you.He has gone to reported at his new post on the 7th of Februar.Although he's no longer at the war front but his heart and soul is still with them,the war againt bh is not an easy war but they are going to win over insurgency in Nigeria.

This story is not different from what a friend told me. The only reason Nigeria Security Forces could not overcome Boko Haram at that initial stage was because an average Muslim northerner, including people like Buhari, Elrufai, and Maiduguri people people in general, believed it was a religious war.

God bless that good soldier. There are nice professional ones among them same as there are bastard stupid power drunk treacherous ones amongst them.

I keep on saying it that bh was an evil nurtured and allowed to grow by the north. Had they come out to declare a firm stand against it earlier, the situation would not have degenerated into this as it is now.

But in all, God help us and protect us.
