PRESS RELEASE

MAINOK: COAS APPLAUDS TROOPS OF OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE FOR THEIR RESILIENCE AND DOGGEDNESS


On Sunday 25 April 2021, troops of Operation Lafiya Dole deployed in Mainok, Borno State, came under multi-directional attacks by Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists mounted on unconfirmed number of Gun Trucks as well as foot soldiers with possible intent of establishing a phantom caliphate in the town. The terrorists were held by the gallant troops of 156 Task Force Battalion until the arrival of reinforcement teams from 7 Division, Special Army Super Camp Ngamdu and Army Super Camp 4, Benesheik.

During the fire fight which lasted several hours, the gallant troops tactically lured a number of the terrorists into a killing zone within their camp where the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole scrambled Alpha jets and helicopter gunship which took turns in decimating the already trapped terrorists. In the aftermath of the encounter, scores of Boko Haram terrorists were neutralized with their body part littering the area and a number of their gun trucks destroyed.

Regrettably, one gallant Officer and six soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice while 5 other soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries. The wounded soldiers have already been evacuated to the military medical facility for treatment. Currently, troops are in full control of Mainok and environ as exploitation for fleeing terrorists is ongoing.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru has applauded troops of Operation Lafiya Dole for their resilience, commitment and doggedness and further reassured Nigerians of the Army’s unalloyed commitment to defeating Boko Haram/SWAP terrorists while urging citizens to always avail the troops with accurate and timely information for prompt action.

Mainok: Zulum Pays Tribute to Fallen Soldiers, Empathizes with Bereaved Families

Borno Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, has conveyed empathy and condolences to the families of some soldiers who died at the weekend during a battle with Boko Haram insurgents in Mainok town, along Maiduguri-Damaturu high way.

Zulum, in a statement by his spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, described the fallen soldiers as heroes, who died protecting the people of Borno and defending Nigeria’s sovereignty.

“Regardless of what happened in Mainok and how it happened as we collectively review the incident, we must first, and importantly, recognize that those soldiers who lost their lives at the weekend were fellow Nigerians; they were parents of children who are now orphans, husbands to wives who are now widows, and loved ones to families and friends now bereaved. They were soldiers of our armed forces who chose out of love for our country, to risk their lives in trying to keep us as safe and to protect the sovereignty of our country. We mourn these heroic soldiers and anyone caught at the unfortunate setback in Mainok. We salute these fallen soldiers for their immeasurable sacrifices and we pray for the repose of their souls. We mourn with the families of these soldiers; we share their grief, commiserate with them and commiserate with the Nigerian military”, Zulum was quoted in the statement.

Gusau however noted that Governor Zulum is seriously disturbed by the incident, especially given the fact that the insurgents have ceaselessly operated along Maiduguri-Damaturu road, impacting on the safety of travelers and residents.

“Governor Zulum is assuring the people of Borno that the setback in Mainok will not deter the state government from its continued collaborative efforts towards ending the insurgency. The Governor calls on the military, other armed forces and volunteers at battle fronts to remain resolute while urging all stakeholders at the highest levels, to continually approach equipping and supporting front line troops with the fear of God, bearing in mind that everyone will one day account for his or her doing or misdoing”, the statement adds.

The Governor of Borno State

Don't be suprised if the young soldiers that put out a video are dealt with or even killed.
Do not be suprised that this was a deliberate act. The Pmb administration has battered the armed forces.

Just take a look at the main part of the story and take a look at the topic/headline!

But fools, bastards, animals, children of hate, frustrations and perdition are all rejoicing on the soldiers that died in the attack as the below stated...

Regrettably, one gallant Officer and six soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice 

For all of you being happy about the deaths of our military personnel and the swines that goes about killing our police men and women.
The evil y'all support will never depart from abode.
The sorrow, tears and blood you all yearn for will be the portion of every one in your family above the age of 18.
Terrible animals and losers in life.

Peace shall reign in this nation whether you blood sucking animals and terrorist sympathizers like it or not.

(Quite this post if it gets to you.... swines!)

What manner of topic and body!
Nowhere in the topic says how scores of Boko Haram terrorists were killed!!!
Pathetic!!

What else do you expect?

Look at what kids as young as 5 consume, the imagery alone is something else.

You should not be surprised with these when you tell kids, killing is a sin but if you kill infidels ehmmm you are ok, r@pe is a sin but if you r@pe infidels it's ok. If you do ANYTHING in All@hu's name it's ok.

When they get used to doing that evil even you that is not a Kaffir, not an infidel, you go collect, e go reach you, the rain will not avoid your roof.

When you have a system that teaches you "Everyone else evil, you good, everyone else not worthy, immoral, Kaffirs, Infidels etc ALL YOUR LIFE from birth till whatever age you are now.

Is it a surprise that they turn out to be aggressive? To want to eliminate all the things they've being indoctrinated to hate?

For perspective look at Jainists you can NEVER have an extremist Jainist because Jainism deals with peace so being an extreme Jainist simply means you won't hurt any living thing they aren't thought to hate anyone, nobody is infidel, kaffir, Sinner, unbelievers, others etc in Jainism

In Christianity there are unbelievers but it is very clear that you are not to hate them, you are not to kill them, infact it is clear that Jesus came to save them, people may ask what about the crusades, well that was a response to Jihadists invasions of Europe, the Muslims had taken over all of Constantinople and North Africa so the Europeans needed to fight under a banner so the crusaders where formed to protect the rest of Europe from falling to them.

Hindus do not believe in converting others to their religion whether peacefully or forcefully, for over 1000years the religion didn't grow outside India and guess what it's older than Judaism, Christianity and Islam infact Islam is the youngest of all the religions I've listed today, in all of them none has death penalty for leaving it or for apostasy

Why am I saying this, when you are in a cult, in a maze, in a ditch you cannot see the future it's only someone that is outside that can tell you oga your car done enter gutter you may suspect but you cannot know for sure even if you believe it you may not know the depth the seriousness of it until you come out and see for yourself.

So my brothers and sisters, come out, from whatever religion, society, club, cult etc you are in.

View things as an honest uninterested third party and ask yourself this simple questions

"If not for this indoctrination, would I do this thing I'm doing?"
Would I see this person as evil? Just because he or she doesn't believe in the story I was told
Would I be in this religion if my parents weren't in it? If I wasn't born into it? Or if it wasn't easier for me to be in it?

If you were the last man on earth, would you still be in it?
