Boko Haram Bella Naija

Boko Haram attacked a military post near Damboa town of Borno State on Tuesday, leaving 21 soldiers and five civilians dead.

The attack reportedly occurred at Bulabulin-Ngaura village, Premium Times reports. 

The terrorists were said to have arrived  in over ten trucks and motorcycles armed with heavy weapons like rocket launchers, anti-aircraft and several assault rifles.

“We could not match them because we had Ak47 rifles that are not fully loaded. When we realized that they have taken over the place, some of us escaped to Maiduguri and other places but many could not make it. As we were busy engaging them I saw over 16 bodies of my colleagues on the ground that made me to give up because I was not having enough ammunition to carry on,”  said a soldier.

The soldier also said he believed that some of his colleagues were abducted.

    OH my Lord. The terrorists living in the forests are more armed than the nation of over 150 million security forces. Isn’t that sad! With all the money Nigeria has, why can’t the government invest in sophisticated ammunition that can fight and hopefully scare off these criminals off? If the security forces of a nation have to run away from terrorist attack, then I can assure you that country is in deeper troubles than we are seeing now…Oh Nigeria. Things must change now. This is bad for Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

    It’s really disturbing how these guys get the funding to carry out their operations, why won’t Jonathan’s administration just exterminate this vermin from the source. Why why why?

    Its baffling how these animals are allowed to continue their attacks almost on a daily basis the statement from the “soldier” says it all really. Nigeria is doomed!

    No ammunition for the Army yet the president is commissioning a Centenary City in Abuja that will gulp 2.4 trillion Naira. Who will live there when we are not guaranteed tomorrow?
    I don’t blame the soldiers for running away. Who will take care of their families after they die for a country that rewards thieves instead of good folks?
