fear as Nigeria military orders relocation of its troops
Nigeria Army lost four of its officers to the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist on Saturday in Borno State.
An online medium, Premium Times reports that the terrorist group attacked the Nigerian Army 5 Brigade in Gubio at about 18:00hrs.
This was as the country prepared for the Eid festivities.
Premium Times reports that the fallen soldiers tried to defend their territory but suffered personnel and equipment losses in the process.
Boko Haram reportedly cart away with four gun trucks, one artillery gun and one mortar gun during the attack.
The insurgents later abandoned the tank in the nearby bush
The incident has forced the Nigeria military to relocate its troops and 5 Brigade from Gubio, about 100 kilometres from Maiduguri to a larger camp in Damasak
The medium quotes a senior military as a source saying “Therefore, we now have no troops in Gubio, Magumeri and Kareto.”
The decision of the military simply implies that between Maiduguri to Damasak which is about 160 kilometres and its occupants are vulnerable to attacks without a military presence.
A few weeks ago, Boko Haram ambushed the military convoy in Borno leading to the death of a colonel, a captain and five soldiers.
Meanwhile, the federal government has continued to boast before the international community and the media that it has defeated the terrorist group.
