[BREAKING NEWS] Boko haram killed army commander
BREAKING NEWS!!! Boko Haram is said to have killed an army commander, as well as three captains and 13 others, after seizing a military base.
Rising Sun History has heard that a commander of one of the Nigerian army’s battalions battling insurgency in the north-east could have been killed.
The commander, a lieutenant-colonel, is believed to have been killed by alleged Boko Haram insurgents who attacked a military base in Mainok, Borno
state, on Sunday evening, according to TheCable.
According to military reports, the attack also claimed the lives of thirteen soldiers. Soldiers engaged rebels, as we previously mentioned.
However, sources told TheCable that the troops were overwhelmed by the insurgents, who arrived with “heavy guns.”
One of the sources said, “They had four MRAPs [armoured fighting vehicles], four gun trucks, and other heavy machines.”
“As I talk, the commanding officer and a few other soldiers have been struck.
“Air support was provided, but the air force misplaced its coordinates and was unable to destroy the insurgents.”
“The troops have been dislodged from the camp as the rebels take over,” according to another source.
The militants, who infiltrated the base at around 2 p.m. on Sunday, disguised themselves as a military convoy and gained entry to the premises
before firing indiscriminately and killing the soldiers, according to reports. In addition, the insurgents destroyed a police station and seized arms from a military base. According to a military source, the insurgents worked for about two hours before fleeing the attack site.
When contacted, army spokesman Mohammed Yerima said he would provide an update on the attack later.
