Boko-haram Attack- I Pulled Off My Dirty Uniform And Ran (Nigerian Soldier) by ChaleeBendel: 11:43am On Nov 26, 2018
One of the soldiers who escaped the deadly attack on the military formation in Metele in Borno state has narrated how he escaped.

Over 100 soldiers attached to 157 task force battalion were reportedly killed in the attack while the armoury at the formation was looted.

The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) had claimed responsibility for the attack.

The soldier who spoke off the record said more than 100 of his colleagues fled the attack.

The soldier accused the military authorities of lying to the public about the insurgency in the north-east, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to act.

“Most of our people dropped their arms and pulled off this dirty uniform… the bodies of our troops littered everywhere but we watched the news and heard army headquarters saying troops repelled the attack,” he told TheCable.

“The army chief and other generals only sit in Abuja and lie to Nigerians whereas soldiers are being killed on daily basis. We lack manpower but nobody is telling the president the truth.

“The president should demand the whereabouts of all the soldiers deployed to Operation Last Hold to fight Boko Haram under Major General Abbah Dikko. The answer is, all of them have been crushed by Boko Haram and their new weapons and arms are what the Boko Haram is using to attack us. Please, help us tell Mr President that the service chiefs are just lying to him.”

Another soldier said he and his colleagues engaged the insurgents in a gun battle for 40 minutes but they eventually ran out of ammunition.

He said troops at the formation were alerted about the attack, one hour before the insurgents struck.

“Our commander, Lieutenant Colonel Sakaba told us to prepare for battle after being briefed by one of our soldiers whose duty is to monitor what is coming from distance,” he said.

“We engaged the terrorists for over 40 minutes before we ran out of ammunition on that very Sunday. They were well equipped and armed with rocket propelled grenades, more than 12 gun trucks mounted with anti-air craft shooting at us from a long range,” he said.

“Some of us ran out of bullets and they overpowered us, we fled but those who could not escape were slaughtered like chicken.

“My brother our formation is surrounded by big trenches and barbed wires, which became a trap for our made it difficult for them to escape. I watched many of my fellow friends died helplessly in cold blood.”

Another soldier who wants to be identified at Gods child, said it was a miracle that they survived the onslaught.

Meanwhile Burutai is sipping champagne and calculating his profits on the two houses he own and rented out in Dubai.

But then again we warned you people when Buhari was boasting how (as a former military General) he'd wipe out bokoharam within months.

Remind me how long Buhari has been president.

You can't really blame the foot soldiers. Their combat vehicles and ammunition were those procured when Shagari (and Jonathan) were presidents.

Just imagine this. The APC and NA should stop feeding Nigerians lies. They purposely created a media blackout of BH activities in the north east to deceive people into believing they are winning the war.

And the silly snake charmer army chief keeps flexing muscles by killing Shittes for protesting incarceration of their leader while his own boys are stationed at the mercy of BH in the north east.

Yeye service chiefs who would rather sing praises of a brainless dullard than ensure their boys are well armed to protect the country.

As far as I am concerned soldiers posted to the north east are mere pawns in the Boko haram chess game by some top military brass, northern politicians / leaders.

Lying Mohammed is still searching for a new word for such calamity that befell our soldiers who have now become 'soft targets' in Buhari and APC's imaginary 'technically defeated' terror war.

We don't have a government in place. It's just a bunch of scammers who's got nothing tangible to offer Nigerians.

You people are ridiculous. Why don't you go and join the battle. My friend in the military posted to borno told me that the average weapons boko uses is anti aircraft guns. Their range and intensity is superior to the AK47 Nigerian soldiers.
Until Nigeria starts procuring F-16s and the like capable of giving cover then Nigeria may continue to lose this battle.

It might be time for us to call in the US Airforce for assistance in this war.
