Boko Haram Attacks Military Post In Borno, Kills 16 Soldiers, Several Others Missing

7dbb310edfd7a5db8948ed64668503adGunmen suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents have attacked a military post at Bulabulin Ngaura in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State, killing about 16 soldiers.

One of the soldiers that narrowly escaped the attack, who confirmed the incident to journalists in Maiduguri, the state capital yesterday, said, “We were totally subdued by the insurgents”.

The soldier, who recounted what happened amid sobbing, lamented that “some of my colleagues were abducted and many others escaped with bullet wounds. Dozens of Boko Haram insurgents stormed our checkpoint at Bulabulin on Tuesday night.

“The terrorists came in a convoy of over 30 vehicles, mounted with Anti-Aircraft guns”.

On how he was able to escape unhurt, he said, “I was at the checkpoint when the terrorists came, we tried our best but they had advantage over us. They had AA and we had AK47 rifles that are not fully loaded. When we realised that they have taken over the place, some of us escaped to Maiduguri and other places but many could not make it.

“As I am talking to you, 16 bodies of our colleagues have been brought to Maiduguri; these are besides those that sustained injuries and many others that are missing in action”.

The Defence Headquarters is yet to deny or confirm that a military post was attacked as at the time of filing this report.
