Nigerian Soldiers Kill Boko Haram Terrorists, Retake Baga (Photos) by omoowo8888(m): 6:49pm On Jan 10
Special Forces of the Nigeria Army on Thursday killed hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists in massive clearance operations in Borno State.

The troops made up of Nigerian Army Special Forces, the Nigerian Navy Special Forces as well as the Nigerian Air Force Special Forces however lost an officer and a soldier during the clearance operations.

According to the Nigerian Army Spokesman, Brig. Gen Sani Usman, the operations which commenced on December 28, cleared several towns and villages of Boko Haram remnants.

Usman, in a statement, listed towns cleared as Zare, Gudumbali, Kukawa, and Cross Kauwa while troops have also taken control of Baga and are clearing the fringes of Lake Chad.

He lauded the troops for their gallantry in giving the terrorists a bloody nose, saying the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole also gave maximum air support in dealing a devastating blow on the terrorists.

Brig Gen. Usman said: “In the determined efforts to wipe out remnants of Boko Haram terrorists that now goes by the appellation of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP), the gallant troops of the newly formed Nigerian Army Special Forces Command (NASFC), Operation LAFIYA DOLE, have given the terrorists that attacked troops location in Baga a bloody nose.

“The triumphant troops, particularly the highly revered 707 Special Forces Brigade which is the vanguard of the great exploit, dealt the decisive blow that neutralised several terrorists along that axis despite prior warning to them by some unpatriotic elements.

“The Special Forces commenced clearance operations on 28th December 2018, where they cleared Zare, Gudumbali, Kukawa and Cross Kauwa without any resistance from suspected terrorists. However, at Cross Kauwa, the unfortunate ISWAP terrorists made a costly mistake of raising their ugly heads.

“In professional fashion the troops exploited the situation to instantly and decisively neutralise the insurgents and captured some equipment.

“Though some of the terrorists attempted to infiltrate troops camp at Monguno, the gallant troops lured them and neutralised many of them and recovered some arms and ammunition.

“The troops who are in high spirit had since linked up with other forces in Baga where they cleared the Naval Base and the surrounding areas.

“Unfortunately, in the process, the Special Forces lost one officer and a soldier, while five other soldiers sustained injuries.



“The remains of the two fallen heroes and the wounded have since been evacuated.

“The injured soldiers are in stable condition and receiving medical attention.

“The troops are busy consolidating and clearing vestiges of the terrorists within the northern Borno State axis with special emphasis on the Lake Chad region.”

When Bokoharam kill troops ,they release video footage and pics, but the Nigerian army only releases statements claiming victory and to me, this smells like the usual dish we eat daily on nairaland, and it is called PROPAGANDA!

This is good. We should be encouraging our soldiers. They are our protector. Next to monitor our borders to avoid them attacking again in their gorilla fashion, because for sure, they will attempt another attack

Because boko haram is doing propaganda. USA didn't release videos of them taking out Osama bin laden neither those of their war in Iraq or Yemen.

Besides, even if you see videos, you will still call it propaganda

We've been saying it and we will keep saying it that you guys should should learn how to separate we true IGBOS, from the troublemakers that call themselves IPOBS.
We are 2 different set of people please.
We true igbos love our country Nigeria and our darling president.
Ipobs have their hunched back president also called Nnamdi Cownu too.
Have you ever heard or read about any reasonable, responsible and great igbo, from businessmen to footballers, professors, musicians, actors or any celebrities both male and female, even politicians shouting biafra, Biafra EVERYWHERE?!
NEVER!
Only troublemakers do that.
Kindly take note sir.
Goodnight!

What are they retaking? According to the Nigerian Army, Baga was never taken by BH in the first place.

Iol, how many dead bodies? Maybe 5 or 6 . I m very Sure bokoboys left that place for them and left few for them to chew on. There was no real fight at all.

Idiots and cowards. They are still coming back to kill you goats in your 100s. You better drop that useless gun and save yourselves and your families. No body will type rip for u idiots when next they come.

Only a compound fool will keep fighting for this useless country.... Open your useless eyes, u cant have a peaceful and progressive country with this kind of formation.

Yoruba, hausa igbo with almost the same number in terms of population. Christians and muslims with almost the same number of population. Not to talk of over 300 other smaller ethnic groups scattered all over the place. Only a mad idiot will form a country like that and expect peace and progress. You idiot fighting for this nonsense are just wasting your time.

You are wasting your bleeping time.

Hundreds, and no picture??


Even the post that made frontpage on the capture of Baga, the third picture is an old picture.


Instead of celibrating mediocrity, the NA should make plans to withstand any attack on its station, and also go on the offensive against BH to end this madness once and for all.

Why keeping the fight for another day to make more money from it??
