6 Soldiers Killed In Boko Haram Ambush In Banki, Borno State by Kwanza: 9:48am On Mar 16, 2020
Suspected members of the Boko Haram on Sunday morning ambushed Nigerian troops in Banki area of Borno State killing six soldiers.

Military sources confirmed that the attack occurred close to Banki junction.

PREMIUM TIMES is withholding the identities of the slain soldiers to allow the army brief the families. However, the victims, members of the 151 Task Force battalion, include two sergeants, two lance corporals and two privates.

“We lost six soldiers to Boko Haram terrorists this morning. The guys came unexpectedly with sophisticated weapons,” an army officer in Borno said, asking not to be named for fear of victimisation.

Banki is 130 km southeast of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital. Apart from the original residents, the community also houses some 45,000 people displaced by the Boko Haram violence.

When contacted on the attack, the army spokesperson Sagir Musa said he has no information about it.

“I don’t know what you want me to confirm because as I speak to you I’m not in Nigeria. I’m on course in London. Thank you,” he said.

Sunday’s attack in Banki is the latest in a string of attacks by the terror group on Borno communities.

The Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has caused over 30,000 deaths and displaced millions of others, mainly in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states, according to the United Nations.

The Nigerian military has been able to limit the activities of the terror group to the three North-eastern states. However, the group is still able to carry out attacks on civilian and military targets in those three states.

All these boko haram ambush are as a result of traitors in the millitary camp and as well as those giving the rescue informations to the soldiers.
I could remember, the day my town's person who is in the military told us of their experience in maiduguri, of how they were informed by a police officer that the boko haram has threatened to attack a certain place. On hearing this, they rushed to the village in disguise in order to overtake them, so as to reduce the rate of life loss in the village. But to their greatest suprise it was a death trap.
A few meters into the village, the boko haram bandits opened fire on their bus.
How did these guys know that it were soldiers that were inside the bus, even without them wearing military uniform?
After a successful defeat, two of out of them were captured alive, while others died, along with 3 of their soldiers.
After much drilling, the captured bandits opened up that information got to them via the police officer.
wink
The police officer was later killed though.

Too many bad things has happened this year.
This wasn't what we expected the vision 2020 to be like.

I pray we all will not be victims of evil this year.

Is a pity our innocent soldiers are dying for what they know nothing about, while the people pioneering this insurgency are in Abuja signing billions into their pockets all in the name of fighting insurgency.

A military personnel once told me never to expect Boko Haram to end because that's an avenue created by some people to make money. And I guess that's true.

In case you want to join Nigeria Army as a recruit, I don't mean to spoil your dream but think again.
