Boko Haram Targets Army Location In Borno, Scores Killed

Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in the North-East have engaged some Boko Haram terrorists who attempted to infiltrate the Nigerian Army location at 3 Battalion in the Gamboru area of Borno State, during which scores of the fighters were shot dead.

The Defence Headquarters, Abuja, said on Wednesday that the Boko Haram and Islamic State West African Province terrorists came to the military location with seven gun trucks on Monday but met a stiff resistance from the troops.

The Director, Defence Media Operations, Brig. Gen. Bernard Onyeuko, said in a statement that the troops seized three gun trucks, two anti-aircraft guns, two AK-47 rifles and one rocket propelled grenade tube from the insurgents.

Onyeuko said, “Troops of 3 Battalion and Quick Response Force Army Super Camp 11 in Gamboru on a targeted patrol had yet another fierce encounter with some Boko Haram and ISWAP marauders in a convoy of seven gun trucks and many motorcycles approaching the battalion’s location at about 6pm on Tuesday.

“Consequently, the criminals were overpowered and pursued up to the Wurge area. No soldier lost his life, and no military equipment was seized during the encounter.”

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of the Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said there was no rift between the Nigerian and Chadian armed forces as being insinuated in some quarters based on the Chadian troops’ battles with the Boko Haram insurgents.

While fielding questions from newsmen in Abuja, Enenche denied that there was rivalry between Nigeria and Chad or any other country in the Lake Chad basin.

He said, “The Nigerian component of the Multi-National Joint Task Force together with other members from the Lake Chad Basin Commission has been involved in clearance operation around the Lake Chad Basin.

“This is the fallout of the recent offensive actions of the armed forces of Nigeria in the North-East Operation Lafiya Dole.

“There is no disagreement between the Nigerian and Chadian troops and joint operations are ongoing.

“The combined effort of troops of the land component, maritime component and air component has resulted in the neutralisation of scores of the Boko Haram terrorists and ISWAP elements.”

I still wonder why Nigeria can not bring in her full resources to crush this Boko Haram menace once and for all! And to think that a country like Chad can deal Boko Haram a big blow as they did makes me doubt Nigeria's sincerity in ending Boko Haram! Am ashamed of this country!

I don't see Nigerian Army defeating Boko Haram in the next ten years if they keep waiting for Boko boys to attack and then they repel the attacks.
I'm not much of a soldier but in contests, I know that the best way to defend is to attack.
Leave civilians and take the battle to Boko Haram!!!

Buhari why are you on the defensive in this fight against Bokor Haram, your mates are on the offensive.

Take a look at what Chad president did, he took the war to Boko Haram and today they are reading the book of Lamentations.

Also I told somebody, if Buhari was serious and sincere about the fight against insurgents, he would have also ordered immediate attack on Boko Haram from Nigerian side, because obviously as Chad was attacking them, they were retreating to Nigeria.

If Nigeria had lunched an attack on Boko Haram simultaneously, they will be caught in between hot cross fires and will be almost crushed.

But the dullard in ASO ROCK is always a failure all round.

What kind of a country are we? There own is to repel, they can't attack and destroy them once and for all. Those using boko Haram to inflict suffering us will never do well in life. The life they have wasted on this mission will surely hunt them and their families.
