Boko Haram dares Buratai, launch attack on Army base where he relocated to in Borno State

Few weeks after it received heavy blow from Chadian military forces in which they scampered for safety in Nigeria and other neighouring countries, Boko Haram terrorists on Thursday launched their own an attack on the Nigerian Army Special Super Camp at Ngamdu, a border town between Borno and Yobe where the Nigerian Army Chief has relocated to.

This attack came barely 72 hours after the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai sent a damning message to launch a final onslaught and defeat the insurgents within a very short time.

The Chief of Army Staff, at the 2020 Special Easter celebration with the troops at the Camp, promised to stay with them until the insurgents are “substantially degraded.”

Sources revealed that the insurgents came in motor guntrucks from the South-western side of the Camp and opened fire.

But no fatality was recorded except minor injuries sustained by some soldiers.

It was further gathered that General Buratai ordered the troops to chase the “ranting insurgents” and destroy them, warning the soldiers to focus on a bigger target.

Said the source, “The Chief of Army Staff told the soldiers to see what happened as a distraction from the main operation that they are going to carry out. But we defended ourselves very well by repelling them.

 “We suspect it was the advance operation that we carried out yesterday that got them angry and they decided to come to attack us. You know we killed some of their men in the operation and captured others alive so they were angry.”

The Acting Director, Army Public Relation, Colonel Sagir Musa, could not reply enquiries made to him.
