Boko Haram Attacks Military Convoy At Azare-Kamuya, Carts Away Cash, Equipment by ijustdey: 11:57am On Sep 08
Boko Haram fighters have stolen a large amount of money from the Nigerian military following an ambush on a logistics convoy on Friday morning, PREMIUM TIMES has learnt.

One soldier was also wounded in the attack.

Soldiers of Nigerian Army Super Camp 3 and the 231 Battalion — both under Sector 2 Operation Lafiya Dole — were moving supplies from Damaturu, Yobe State, to Biu, Borno State, when they drove into a Boko Haram pitfall around Azare-Kamuya end of the highway at about 9:00 a.m., military sources said.

A fierce firefight that followed left at least one soldier wounded and large military equipment destroyed. A gun truck for the 231 Battalion was seized by the insurgents and taken away.

They also made away with N15,492,000 in ration cash allowance for soldiers on the frontlines. At N1,000 per day, the amount can cover allowances of 20,000 troops for a week.

A reinforcement from 27 Task Force Brigade, Damaturu, which later intervened in the attack killed one of the insurgents. French newswire, AFP, reported that Boko Haram claimed two soldiers were killed in the attack.

Military sources told PREMIUM TIMES one Boko Haram fighter was killed but insisted only one soldier was wounded and no military casualties in the Friday morning attack.

The attack comes as Boko Haram continues to exploit a lack of military presence on large swathes of the interstate between Borno and Yobe. The army said it was implementing a strategy of concentrating soldiers at ‘super camps’ rather than at smaller outposts across the troubled region.

While Boko Haram fighters have invaded smaller units since they renewed targeting of military bases in mid-2018, they have also overrun large battalions and even brigades in different parts of the northeast. The attacks combined have left scores of soldiers killed, including the assault that devastated 157 Task Force Battalion last November.

As the military moves soldiers to super camps to make attacks on bases more difficult for insurgents, Boko Haram has been taking over communities left unprotected by the new measure. At least two local government areas were taken over by Boko Haram in recent weeks.

The military has not commented on the latest attack on its logistics convoy. A spokesperson, Sagir Musa, did not return PREMIUM TIMES’ calls and messages seeking comments on the equipment losses and stolen cash.

How can a country not in shambles, be struggling with such a ragtag group?

Please don’t mention America struggling in Afghanistan, cause that is not their country.

You mean to tell me that Boko Haram can just be attacking American soldiers baraks right in America? That would be highly impossible.

So why are the military letting these guys come out so brazenly to sack their convoys and barracks?

1000 naira per day allowance? GOD forbid. People who are fighting for the country getting 1000 per day why a senator sits and get millions for lunch allowance.

Nigerians ran away from home in search of safety in foreign land, they get massacred in their hundreds.
They remained at home to hustle for survival, they get slaughtered by their own people.
Where else can one run to and find safety if not in Christ Jesus
And running to wrong hands in the hands of false teachers is worst because both your soul, spirit and body would be destroyed.
Chaii, dis life ehn.......

The bokos, killer herdsmen, bandits, and other criminals up north get away with it b’cos Nigeria is not a nation with shared values and a commonality of purpose!

Nepotism, federal character, quota-system and the present political-economy that’s been controlled by the core muslim north from the late 60s to date is the main reason Nigeria is facing the mess it’s facing today!
